The written public consultation for this document was open from 10 March 2015 to 21 April 2015. EFSA received comments from three interested parties. EFSA and its NDA Panel wish to thank all stakeholders for their contributions. The current report summarises the outcome of the public consultation, and includes a brief summary of the comments received and how the comments were addressed. The NDA Panel prepared an updated version of the Scientific Opinion on Dietary Reference Values for cobalamin (vitamin B12) taking into account the comments received.
