EFSA mulls expert consultations

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has developed guidance for gathering expert knowledge in food and feed safety risk assessments “in as unbiased a manner as possible”. Such assessments are carried out for a range of products, including genetically modified crops. Risk assessments often find that scientific evidence is limited, and need to rely on expert judgement. However, unaided expert judgement “is often biased”, the EFSA says. It has therefore developed protocols for gathering expert knowledge, with steps covering framing questions, selecting experts, and aggregating the results of multiple experts.
