Reform of the General Food Law – Analysis of the new provisions on transparency

The European Commission proposed on 11 April 2018 to reform the overarching piece of EU law that governs food, Regulation 172/2002 (the “General Food Law”), and the functioning of European Food Safety Agency (EFSA).

ClientEarth’s analysis published on 28 August 2018 concludes that the wording of the reform proposed by the Commission is highly problematic. It needs to be fixed through significant amendments to prevent the new regime, while promising more transparency, leading to the contrary.
