Register now: Meeting on the reporting of human studies in health claim applications

EFSA is organising a meeting with scientists to discuss the reporting of human studies submitted for the scientific substantiation of health claims. The Authority’s health and nutrition experts have noted that the reporting of human studies in health claims varies considerably – in areas such as design, methodology, use of statistics and results – which can lead to delays in the review process or preclude a complete scientific evaluation. Standardised reporting would benefit both EFSA and its stakeholders. Scientists wishing to attend the meeting – which will take place on 20 November 2013 – should register by 30 September.
