EFSA opens ‘treasure trove’ of food safety data to public

30 March 2015

EFSA aims to make available, over the coming years, as much as possible of the data collected by EFSA, its network in EU Member States and submitted by other data providers. Publication of the data warehouse’s access rules is an important milestone in EFSA’s transformation to an open science organisation and increased accessibility to the data it holds.
EFSA has collected and used a large body of information on zoonotic diseases, antimicrobial resistance, foodborne outbreaks, pesticide residues, chemical contaminants, food consumption and chemical hazards. Gradually, over the course of 2015, different stakeholders will be granted access (EFSA News Story, 2 March 2015).
