Webinar: Notification of studies and Pre-submission Advice

Agenda here

25 March 2021, 14:30-16:00 (CET)


This webinar, presented by EFSA staff, introduced additional aspects of the new processes for notification of studies and general pre-submission advice, and advice on renewal.

The target audience included potential applicants, business operators and laboratory/testing facilities.

The webinar covered:

  • information to be notified
  • case study: third party contractors acting on behalf of business operators
  • case study: laboratory initiating the notification of a study and the business operator co-notifying the notification and adding it to an existing pre-application-id
  • case study: parallel notification first according to article 32c(1) and then to article 32b
  • case study: pre-submission advice: MSs involvement
  • case study: pre-submission advice: meeting organization
  • answering session: pending questions collected during the webinar held on 16th February

EFSA will publish soon an FAQ document covering questions on the Practical Arrangements (PAs). This document will conclude the feedback cycle on the PAs and will cover most questions received during the previous webinar. Therefore, the answering session of the webinar addressed only the questions not addressed either by the FAQ document, or by the webinar presentations.

Further requests for clarification on the content of the webinar and any other questions related to the Transparency Regulation should be submitted to the official EFSA support channel (servicedesk [at]
