EFSA panel renewal 2018: food additives and flavourings

Are you an expert in food technology, chemistry, 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 Additives and Flavourings (FAF).*

What does the FAF Panel do?

The panel evaluates the safety of chemical substances added to food and consumer exposure to them. The Panel's work mainly concerns substances evaluated by EFSA before their use can be authorised in the EU. See the Panel’s page for more detail.

To find out more, check out our dedicated topics on food additives, flavourings, sweeteners and food additive re-evaluations. Recent work also includes the re-evaluation of food colours.
