To mark the upcoming entry into application of the Transparency Regulation, the European Commission and the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU, in collaboration with the European food safety authority (EFSA), jointly organise a celebratory virtual event on Tuesday 30 March 2021.

The new Transparency Regulation was published on 6 September 2019, entered into force 20 days after, and will become applicable on 27 March 2021. It aims at increasing the transparency of the EU risk assessment in the food chain, strengthening the reliability, objectivity and independence of the studies used by EFSA, and revisiting the governance of EFSA in order to ensure its long-term sustainability. It is a direct response to a successful European citizens' initiative ‘Stop glyphosate’ and builds upon the findings of the fitness check of the General Food Law Regulation, a comprehensive evaluation, completed in January 2018.
