EFSA and Food Safety Commission of Japan strengthen cooperation

EFSA and the Food Safety Commission of Japan have renewed their memorandum of cooperation, based on their fruitful working relations over recent years. The two food safety bodies agreed to build upon the previous memorandum of cooperation, signed in 2009.

The renewed agreement supports scientific cooperation on collection and sharing of data related to risk assessment.

Bernhard Url, EFSA’s Executive Director, and Hiroshi Satoh, Chair of the Food Safety Commission of Japan signed the agreement on 15 October during EFSA’s scientific conference at EXPO – “Shaping the future of food safety, together”.
