The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has launched an open consultation on its draft guidance on the technical requirements for regulated food and feed product applications to establish the presence of small particles, including nanoparticles. The guidance sets out information requirements for applications in the regulated food and feed product areas, and establishes criteria for assessing the presence of a fraction of small particles. These requirements apply to particles requiring specific assessment at the nanoscale in conventional materials that do not meet the definition of engineered nanomaterial, as set out in the Novel Food Regulation (EU) 2015/2283.
Interested parties are invited to submit written comments by 9 September 2020, using the electronic template provided.
