Annual Report 2011

In 2011, EFSA delivered 658 scientific outputs on a number of important issues including, among others, the E.coli outbreaks in Germany and France, “general function” health claims, welfare risks to animals during transport, artificial sweeteners and bisphenol A.

In addition to providing robust scientific advice and risk assessment to European risk managers, EFSA adopted two key documents: its Policy on Independence and Scientific Decision-Making Processes, detailing the Authority’s approach to safeguarding independence and integrity in its work, and EFSA’s Science Strategy 2012-2016, which lays out its vision for scientific development over the coming years.
