Outcome of a public consultation on the draft Statement on ‘Exposure Assessment of Food Enzymes’
A public consultation was conducted on the draft Statement of the EFSA Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids (CEF Panel) on ‘Exposure assessment of food enzymes’ from 16 February 2016 to 31 March 2016. During the consultation period, EFSA received comments and proposals from nine organisations. All comments were found to be within EFSA’s remit. Based on these comments, the CEF Panel revised the document, and adopted a ‘Statement on Exposure Assessment of Food Enzymes’ on 14 September 2016. This document reports the outcome of the public consultation. It lists comments received, summarises the issues pertinent to the approach and methodology for assessing food enzyme exposure, and outlines how those comments were taken into account in the adopted statement.
