Call to submit scientific information on addictiveness and attractiveness of tobacco additives
The Commission has requested a scientific opinion from the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) on the addictiveness and attractiveness of tobacco additives.
To ensure that the SCENIHR formulates its views on the basis of the most complete and relevant scientific information and data, the Commission has published today a call for scientific information that will run until 11 January 2010.
The details of the call for information can be found at:
The European Commission uses expert advice on risk assessment from three non-food Scientific Committees when preparing policies and proposals. These committees are made up of external, independent scientists and provide authoritative scientific advice in the fields of consumer safety, public health and the environment. The three non-food Scientific Committees are - the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS), the Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) and the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR).
