Webinar with Dr Eliana Henriquez-Rodriguez: “Transparency Regulation and the EU food and feed industry – latest updates”

About This Webinar

There is one month left before the new EU transparency regulation!
This will mean big changes to the way that food business operators/applicants write & submit their dossiers for all regulated products in the food chain, including feed and food dossiers.

The main changes include:

  • All studies used to support the dossier must be notified to EFSA
  • A new procedure for feed additive renewals
  • All confidential data must be fully justified at the time of dossier submission
  • EFSA will decide on confidentiality
  • A non-confidential version of the dossier will be made publicly available

Whilst we anticipate that there will be more bureaucracy & timelines may be affected initially, there are some real benefits which will help applicants. These include:

  • Applicants can request pre-submission advice from EFSA
  • E-submission of dossiers via FSCAP using standardised templates
  • Open EFSA platform to track the status of your application
  • A more transparent & trusted food chain

What To Expect

During this short webinar, we will share the latest updates provided by European authorities regarding the key points that will affect applications for requesting authorisations for food and feed products in the EU – notification of studies to the new EFSA database, public consultations, as well as dossier preparation and submission. 

Format of the webinar: 20 minutes presentation, followed by 10 minutes for questions & answers.
