The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) carried out a public consultation to receive input from the scientific community and all interested parties on the EFSA draft Guidance on aneugenicity assessment. The draft Guidance was developed by the Scientific Committee’s cross‐cutting Working Group on genotoxicity and endorsed by the Scientific Committee for public consultation on 20 February 2020, during its 97th plenary meeting. The public consultation for this document was open from 30 March until 31 May 2020. During this period, EFSA received contributions from 22 interested parties belonging to different sectors (e.g. industry associations, consultancy companies, EU institutions, national authorities, and individual scientists). EFSA and its Scientific Committee wish to thank all the stakeholders for their contributions. This report presents the comments received and addressed after consideration by the Scientific Committee’s cross‐cutting Working Group on Genotoxicity.
