We are very excited to announce that two of our employees have crossed yet another milestone in the history of Pen & Tec Consulting. It’s been 10 years since Laura Payo Lewis our Regulatory Affairs Director and Dr Montserrat Cerrato Sánchez one of our Senior Regulatory Managers joined the company, and to celebrate this we decided to ask them some questions about how Pen & Tec has changed over the past 10 years – read in our interview.
The Transparency Regulation will affect all regulated products covered by the General Food Law (Regulation (EC) No 178/2002) that require an authorisation before entering the market, such as feed and food additives and novel foods, among others. These products must undergo a risk assessment performed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) who determines if, based on the scientific studies provided by the applicant, the product is safe and efficacious. For applications submitted after the 27thMarch 2021, the Transparency Regulation will change several aspects of this assessment, from how studies are reported to the authorities to the type of data that can be treated as confidential.
