EFSA holds discussions with the US FDA, 12 November in Parma

On 12 November, EFSA and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) met in Parma in order to reinforce information exchange on scientific work of mutual interest. 

This follows up the agreement signed on 2 July between EFSA and the FDA to facilitate scientific co-operation in the area of food safety risk assessment. At the meeting EFSA and the FDA will exchange information and discuss a number of current topics including animal cloning, food additives and nanoscience. EFSA is looking to develop similar working arrangements with other authorities world wide in coming years.
