When Food Is Cooking Up a Storm – Proven Recipes for Risk Communications 2015

The objective of these guidelines is to provide a framework to assist decision-making about appropriate communications approaches in a wide variety of situations that can occur when assessing and communicating on risks related to food safety in Europe. The aim is to provide a common framework applicable for developing communications approaches on risk across public health authorities in different countries.

Communicators from EFSA, Member States and the European Commission work together in EFSA’s Advisory Forum Communications Working Group (AFCWG). A key aim of that group is to promote cooperation and coherence in risk communications, particularly between risk assessors in Member States and EFSA – one of the key priorities laid down in EFSA’s Communications Strategy.
