As part of EFSA’s commitment to openness and transparency, the Authority allows observers to attend some of its plenary meetings. By attending these open plenary meetings interested individuals can observe how risk assessment is conducted by EFSA’s Scientific Committee and its Scientific Panels, and at the same time interact with and put questions to EFSA’s scientific experts. The EFSA Guidelines for Observers apply.
Open plenary meetings (registration now open):
At this moment in time there are no plenary meetings open for registration. Registration for the open Scientific Committee plenary meeting in November 2015 is expected to be opened at the end of September 2015.
