In response to a report by the non-governmental organization Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) Sue Davies, chair of the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) Management Board, published a press release on October 24, 2013. In the statement Davies states that the Management Board considers EFSA’s transparency policy robust and stresses that EFSA is greatly appreciative of its experts. Yet, the Management Board also recommends EFSA to carefully consider the conclusions brought forward in the report and point out that some of the issues raised by the report cannot be resolved by EFSA but have to addressed by the European Commission (previously reported on by the FPF).
