New report on data requirements and risk assessment methodologies


In a project for the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), FoBiG, together with RPA Europe S.R.L., has compiled and compared the data requirements and risk assessment methodologies for chemicals in several regulatory areas. The areas examined in detail included e.g. REACH chemicals, biocides, plant protection products, cosmetics, food and feed additives and medicinal products for human and veterinary use. The project provides extensive data, uses comparative analyses to identify differences between regulatory areas, for example with regard to test requirements and assessment methods, and provides examples for possible harmonisation. The results can serve as a basis for the further implementation of the "One Substance - One Assessment" goal formulated in the EU chemicals strategy. The comprehensive project report, including detailed spreadsheet data compilations, was recently published by EFSA.
