EFSA 15/03/16 Comment communiquer lors d’une crise alimentaire – L’EFSA partage ses lignes directrices L'EFSA a élaboré ces lignes directrices avec les États membres de l'UE en se basant sur les leçons tirées de crises alimentaires précédentes. Développé en collaboration avec les membres du groupe de travail « communication » du Forum consultatif de l'EFSA, ce document contribuera à assurer l'harmoniastion et la cohérence des messages en cas de crise. Le document intitulé « Bonnes pratiques pour les communicateurs de crise : Comment communiquer en cas d'incident lié à l’alimentation humaine ou animale » explique aussi clairement le rôle et les responsabilités de l’EFSA ainsi que des organisations des États membres au cours des différentes phases de crise, de manière à améliorer la préparation en cas d’épisode épidémique susceptible de traverser les frontières.

Junta de Andalucía - Medidas de de seguridad alimentaria Alertas sanitarias Puedes consultar información y recomendaciones que conviene seguir para evitar exponerte a determinados riesgos para la salud relacionados con el consumo alimentario: A continuación se resumen las más importantes. Setas EUROPE 26/08/16 RASFF Annual Report 2015. The EU has one of the highest food safety standards in the world – largely thanks to the solid set of EU legislation in place, which ensures that food is safe for consumers. A key tool to ensure the cross-border follow of information to swiftly react when risks to public health are detected in the food chain is RASFF – the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed. Created in 1979, RASFF enables information to be shared efficiently between its members (EU-28 national food safety authorities, Commission, EFSA, ESA, Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Switzerland) and provides a round-the-clock service to ensure that urgent notifications are sent, received and responded to collectively and efficiently. Thanks to RASFF, many food safety risks had been averted before they could have been harmful to European consumers. Vital information exchanged through RASFF can lead to products being recalled from the market. Download the RASFF annual report 2015

BLOG D ALBERT AMGAR 13/09/16 Bilan 2015 du RASFF : + 22,9% de notification d’alertes par rapport à 2014 !. Le nouveau rapport annuel 2015 du RASFF* est paru ! Le blog avait proposé le 1er avril 2016 un Bilan préliminaire annuel 2015 du RASFF : Très nette augmentation des notifications d’alertes. Bien entendu faute de temps et de place, il ne m’est pas possible de rapporter tous les éléments de cet instructif bilan 2015 du RASFF … mais seulement quelques éléments : NORWEGIAN SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE FOR FOOD SAFETY 01/03/16 Risk assessments of "other substances" in food supplements and energy drinks «Other substances» are substances other than vitamins and minerals, with a nutritional and/or physiological effect on the body. “Other substances” are mainly added to food supplements, but may also be added to other foods and beverages, such as sports products and energy drinks. Ingestion of "other substances" in high amounts represents a potential risk for consumers. At EU level, "other substances” remain largely unregulated. In order to ensure safe use of “other substances” many countries have regulated their use at a national level. The Norwegian Food Safety Authority has recommended the Norwegian Ministry for health and care services to regulate the addition of “other substances” to food supplements and other foods at a national level.

EUROPE 20/07/12 FAQ: Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) - role and achievements European Commission Brussels, 20 July 2012 FAQ: Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) - role and achievements What is RASFF? EUROPE 20/07/12 Les contrôles de l’Union européenne nous garantissent une alimentation sans danger Commission européenne Communiqué de presse Bruxelles, le 20 juillet 2012 Les contrôles de l’Union européenne nous garantissent une alimentation sans danger Un rapport de la Commission européenne publié aujourd’hui montre que le système européen d’alerte rapide pour les denrées alimentaires et les aliments pour animaux (RASFF) écarte ou atténue de nombreux risques en matière de sûreté alimentaire et que les contrôles effectués nous garantissent une alimentation sans danger. Le RASFF joue un rôle crucial pour garantir l’innocuité des produits «de la ferme à la table», en déclenchant une réaction rapide lorsqu’un risque alimentaire est détecté.

EFSA 31/05/12 Scientific Opinion on Risk Assessment Terminology . EFSA Journal 2012;10(5):2664 [43 pp.]. doi:10.2903/j.efsa.2012.2664 Type: Opinion of the Scientific Committee/Scientific Panel On request from: EFSA Question number: EFSA-Q-2010-00705 Adopted: 18 April 2012 Published: 31 May 2012 Affiliation: European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), Parma, Italy The Scientific Committee of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) reviewed the use of risk assessment terminology within its Scientific Panels. An external report, commissioned by EFSA, analysed 219 opinions published by the Scientific Committee and Panels to recommend possible ways of improving the expression and communication of risk and/or uncertainties in the selected opinions. The Scientific Committee concluded that risk assessment terminology is not fully harmonised within EFSA. In part this is caused by sectoral legislation defining specific terminology and international standards for specific fields of risk assessment and thus for specific Panels.

EFSA 16/05/12 2011 Annual Report on crisis preparedness & response . Question nº:EFSA-Q-2011-00398Issued: 30 mai 2011 Abstract This report presents EFSA activities related to food and feed safety crisis preparedness and urgentr esponses. In 2011, one training exercise, in collaboration with the European Commission, Member States and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control was organised to raise awareness amongst EFSA response personnel of the principles of crisis response in the context of urgent risk assessment. In the same period, EFSA received one urgent request from the European Commission regarding an unusually large outbreak of Shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli serotype O104:H4 in France and Germany. The response to the urgent request included careful consumer advice about risk mitigation and prevention and was delivered as public notices and EFSA statements online within statutory timeframes.
