February 20, 2006

Brussels, 17 Feb 2006

In line with its policy on engaging with organisations with a legitimate interest in EFSA's work, EFSA has invited scientists from environmental non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to share views on scientific and procedural issues related to the Authority's work and advice in this field.

The purpose of this meeting is to exchange views on scientific issues related to EFSA's opinions on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and, in general, on EFSA's work in this area. This meeting will provide an opportunity for NGOs to further elaborate their scientific concerns, expressed at various occasions and to substantiate these concerns with scientific reasoning. Equally, EFSA will use this opportunity to explain fundamental concepts of hazard characterisation and risk assessment.
