One member of the Panel, D. Wölfle, declared an interest as he prepared the summary of the toxicological data on the substance under contract of his Institute BfR with EFSA. This was considered as a conflict of interest because he could not act at the same time as a representative of the contractor and a member of the Panel with voting rights. He was allowed to stay in the room to answer questions specifically addressed to him but did not participate in the discussion of the opinion.
