From March 27th 2021, the new EU regulation on transparency applies.
This means big changes to the way that food business operators/applicants write & submit their dossiers for all regulated products in the food chain, including novel foods.
The main changes include:
All studies used to support the dossier must be notified to EFSA
All confidential data must be fully justified at the time of dossier submission
EFSA will decide on confidentiality
A non-confidential version of the dossier will be made publicly available
