EFSA to increase access to food safety data

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) aims to allow public access over the next three to four years to “as much as possible” of the data it collects on food safety, including pesticide residues and food consumption information. It launched its scientific “data warehouse” in March. Access rules have been agreed with data providers. Over the course of 2015, data providers, EFSA scientific staff, risk managers and the general public will be granted access. Separately, the EFSA has issued technical advice on how to use the existing EFSA comprehensive European food consumption database for estimating dietary exposure to genetically modified foods. It encourages its use for all GMO applications.
