The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) was established in 2002. On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland is hosting a joint conference with EFSA to look back over the past ten years on the evolution of food safety in the EU, to assess current matters and to look forward to what food safety issues may be on the menu in 2022. It is a time to pause and reflect on past achievements and to anticipate new challenges for the next decade. EFSA has evolved as a credible and trusted organisation that delivers independent scientific advice, which underpins European food safety policy. Safeguarding its core values of openness and transparency and building trust among all stakeholders has been central to the activities of EFSA over its short lifetime. Responding to new demands of evaluating regulated products, harmonising risk assessment approaches, protecting the independence of its scientific advice and strengthening collaboration with EU Member States are just some of the challenges facing EFSA over the next decade.
