Kenneth Haar

 

e-mail: [1][FOI #7721 email]  

 

 

Re:       Your request for public access to documents of 2 March 2020

             Our ref.: PAD 2020/023

 

Dear Mr Haar,

 

I refer to your e-mail of 2 March 2020, by means of which you asked for
access to “documents which contain the following information:

 a. All written communication since 1 October 2019 between EFSA and the
European Commission concerning GMOs (including gene-editing),
including minutes of meetings, emails and any other kind of written
communication between the two institutions.
 b. A list of meetings and the minutes of meetings between EFSA and the
European Commission concerning GMOs (including gene-editing) since 1
October 2019.”

 

Having commenced the processing of your request in accordance with
[2]Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents
(hereinafter “the PAD Regulation”) we would like to provide you with
background information and clarify the scope of your request, as detailed
in the subsequent paragraphs.

 

As the reference body for risk assessment of food and feed safety in the
European Union (EU), EFSA provides scientific advice and scientific and
technical support for the legislation and policies of the EU in all fields
that have a direct or indirect impact on food and feed safety. In
accordance with its Founding [3]Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 (“EFSA
Founding Regulation”), EFSA provides independent scientific advice to the
European Commission, European Parliament and Union Member States on all
matters within these fields and scientific and technical support at the
request of the Commission; further, it acts with a view to the
identification of emerging risks and it communicates in the fields within
its mission.

 

In particular as concerns the area of genetically modified organisms
(GMOs), EFSA provides scientific advice on the safety of GMO market
registration applications and applications for renewal of existing
authorisation of GMOs under [4]Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 (hereinafter
“GMO Regulation”) and [5]Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No
503/2013 (hereinafter “GMO Implementing Regulation”) to the European
Commission (EC) and European Union (EU) Member States. Against this
background, EFSA develops scientific and administrative guidance documents
respectively clarifying data requirements for a comprehensive risk
assessment and explaining how these data should be submitted to EFSA (e.g.
format, structure). EFSA also responds to requests by the European
Commission and the European Parliament on generic issues related to GMOs
(hereinafter “EC generic mandates”).

 

It follows from the above that an initial screening has revealed that the
potential documents falling within the scope of your request relate to a
broad category of documents. Indeed, EFSA exchanges with the European
Commission (EC) on GMOs in the following main areas:

 

1)  GMO applications: We should inform you that occasionally, EFSA
exchanges with the EC on specific GMO market registration applications
submitted to EFSA in accordance with the GMO Regulation. EFSA assesses the
safety of GM products based on the information provided by applicants and
taking into consideration comments raised by Member States. EFSA provides
its scientific opinion to EC when a comprehensive risk assessment is
completed.

You can find all documents related to GMO applications currently and
previously assessed by EFSA in the [6]EFSA Register of Questions, by
selecting “GMO” in the “Unit filter” and “Member States” in the field
“Mandate Requestor”.

 

2)  Development of scientific guidelines to applicants: At several
occasions, EC asked EFSA to develop scientific guidelines to help
applicants in preparing their dossiers for marketing their GM products
(e.g. EC mandates received in 2007 to prepare guidance documents on safety
evaluation of GM animals). For the time being, EFSA does not count similar
mandates under scrutiny.

 

 3. Generic mandates: EFSA frequently exchanges with the EC on their
requests related to GMOs and more recently on genome editing
techniques. Since you specifically refer to the latter in your request
for access to documents of 2 March 2020, please note that an editorial
with background information concerning this topic has recently been
[7]published on the EFSA journal.

As for GMO applications referred to above, you can find the correspondence
between EC and EFSA on these generic mandates and related documents (i.e.
terms of reference) received on GMO topics in the [8]EFSA Register of
Questions, by selecting “GMO” in the “Unit filter” and “Commission” in the
field “Mandate Requestor”.

 

In the light of the aforementioned clarifications, we kindly ask you to
clarify the area of exchanges between the EFSA and the EC on GMOs and/or
related topics that you are interested in and/or whether you are
interested in exchanges pertaining to a specific mandate or GMO
application.

 

We would be grateful if you could confirm by return message to this e-mail
address ([9][email address] ) which
documents you are interested in by clearly identifying the area of
correspondence and the specific mandate. Upon receipt of your
clarification, we will continue to process your request in accordance with
the PAD Regulation.

 

Yours sincerely,

To the EFSA
Request for access to documents
Your ref : PAD 2020/023

Dear sir or madam.

I have been asked to specify and limit my request for access to documents regarding exchanges between the European Commission and EFSA on GMOs, a request filed 2. March. Your suggestion was received on 23 March.
Apologies for late reply.

After reviewing the request, I should like to request all documents within the time frame (since 1 October 2019) that belong to the following category:

"GMO applications: We should inform you that occasionally, EFSA
exchanges with the EC on specific GMO market registration applications
submitted to EFSA in accordance with the GMO Regulation. EFSA assesses the
safety of GM products based on the information provided by applicants and
taking into consideration comments raised by Member States. EFSA provides
its scientific opinion to EC when a comprehensive risk assessment is
completed."

I hope this helps clarify my request and to limit it to a manageable level.

Yours sincerely,

Kenneth Haar
