You can check the status of your application at any time.
How does it work?
Upon receipt of a mandate in relation to an application, EFSA allocates an EFSA question number (e.g. EFSA-Q-2009-12345). With this number, applicants and stakeholders can check the status of an application in the Register of Questions (ROQ) database. This online database describes the status and progress of EFSA’s scientific work.
This is what you need to do to find an application:
- Click on the ‘Question’ option in the top menu of the ROQ.
- Select ‘Application’ in the ‘Question type’ field and choose the relevant ‘Food sector area’.
- You can then search using key words or a question number.
- After locating your application, the ‘Status’ column indicates the present stage of the evaluation. When a question is ‘Finished’, an opinion has been adopted by an EFSA Panel and is scheduled for publication within a few days. If the opinion is published, it is available via the ‘View’ link.
