Consensus Documents for the Work on the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds


The OECD's Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds decided at its first session, in 1999, to focus its work on the development of science-based consensus documents, which are mutually acceptable among member countries. These consensus documents contain information for use during the regulatory assessment of a particular food/feed product. In the area of food and feed safety, consensus documents are being published on the nutrients, anti-nutrients or toxicants, information of the product's use as a food/feed and other relevant information.

These documents are updated to take into account new knowledge on the topic. In order to assist in this, it is possible to make comments to the OECD on the Consensus Documents.
