The objective of this call for expressions of interest is to establish a list of individuals (natural persons) with scientific expertise to assist EFSA in carrying out the preparatory work in the areas of generic risk assessments and the assessment of applications for the authorisation of regulated products, in particular in the areas of animal health and welfare, pesticides, plant health risk assessment, genetically modified organisms, food additives, food contact materials, food enzymes, novel foods and feed additives. The delivered preparatory work will be reviewed by EFSA staff and/or ad hoc experts for its use in EFSA scientific outputs.
EFSA carries out generic risk assessments in the area of food safety, animal health and welfare and plant health to support EU risk managers in their decision-making. Many food and feed related products require a scientific assessment to evaluate their safety before risk managers can authorise them for the EU market. These so-called regulated products include substances used in food and feed (such as additives, enzymes, flavourings, novel foods and nutrient sources), food contact materials and pesticides, genetically modified organisms, food-related processes and processing aids.
