European Food Safety Authority publishes new guidance on nanotechnologies in food and feed.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published its guidance on how to assess the safety of nanoscience and nanotechnology applications ("Guidance on risk assessment of the application of nanoscience and nanotechnologies in the food and feed chain: Part 1, human and animal health").

The guidance gives practical suggestions on the types of testing that are needed and the methods that can be applied.

Reinhilde Schoonjans, a risk assessment scientist at EFSA, said: “This guidance is very timely because it gives applicants the tools they need to prepare complete nanotechnology applications and equips risk assessors such as EFSA with the appropriate tools to evaluate their safety”.

This document, which focuses on the safety assessment for human and animal health, underwent a three-month public consultation and takes into account all comments received.

It covers areas such as novel foods, food contact materials, food and feed additives, and pesticides and is intended for all interested parties – in particular risk assessors, risk managers and applicants.

The guidance will now enter a pilot phase, with finalisation envisaged by the end 2019.

A second guidance will be developed in 2019 focusing on environmental risk assessment of nanoscience and nanotechnology applications in the food and feed chain.
