Efsa seeks comments on draft statement for food enzymes

On 16 February, the European Food Safety Authority (Efsa) opened the public consulting phase of its project to introduce a new guidance document on its principles for estimating exposure to food enzymes.

A draft statement on this process was accepted at a meeting of Efsa’s Scientific Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids (CEF) on 3 February. This document is intended to form an annex to the CEF’s 2009 guidance on food enzymes.

The nine-page draft statement is now in the public domain. Interested parties will have until 31 March to submit written comments on it to the EU regulator. Once this period closes the Efsa will publish all comments it receives.
