EFSA has published its guidance on how to assess the safety of nanoscience and nanotechnology applications. The guidance gives practical suggestions on the types of testing that are needed and the methods that can be applied. 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.
