BPA plan ready for new EFSA assessment in 2018

21 December 2017

Feedback from a public consultation has helped EFSA to finalise the strategy for its next re-evaluation of the toxicity of bisphenol A (BPA). On 14 December, EFSA published a “scientific protocol” that transparently details upfront the scope, methodology and information needs before the assessment starts.
EFSA’s expert Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids (CEF) discussed and endorsed the protocol at a meeting in Parma on 30 November, giving the green light for the next phase of the preparatory work for the assessment. EFSA will set up a new working group in 2018 and start collecting scientific papers and data (EFSA Highlights, 14 December 2017).
