EFSA BPA protocol endorsed
In December 2017, EFSA’s expert Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids (CEF) discussed and endorsed a scientific protocol for the upcoming re-evaluation of Bisphenol A (BPA) hazards. The protocol is a detailed plan that defines upfront the scope, methodology and information needs before the assessment starts in 2018. The protocol was developed for the CEF Panel by an EFSA international working group including experts from Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland, represented by Rex FitzGerald from the SCAHT.
