EFSA panel renewal 2018: Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids

Are you an expert in food technology, food microbiology, toxicology or human epidemiology? Do you have experience assessing chemical risks and consumer exposure to chemicals in the food chain? Would you like to put your expertise at the service of hundreds of millions of European consumers? Then you should consider applying as an expert for EFSA’s Scientific Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes and Processing Aids (CEP).*

What does the CEP Panel do?

The panel evaluates the safety of chemical substances added to food or used in food packaging, and related processes. The Panel's work mainly concerns substances and processes evaluated by EFSA before their use can be authorised in the EU. See the dedicated page for more detail.

To find out more, check out our dedicated topics on food contact materials, food enzymes, active and intelligent packaging substances and plastics and plastic recycling. Recent work also includes the safety assessment of bisphenol A.
