Implementation of the Transparency Regulation

Implementation of the Transparency Regulation

The new Transparency Regulation was published in the Official Journal on 6 September 2019. It entered into force 20 days after publication and will become applicable on 27 March 2021.

The Commission and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are closely cooperating to ensure the proper implementation of the new Regulation.

To that end and to ensure full transparency on the stakeholder engagement process, DG SANTE and EFSA agreed on common principles for interaction with stakeholders.

This page will list all input and documents sent by stakeholders and stakeholder associations to DG SANTE as well as meetings organised by DG SANTE in the context of the implementation of the Transparency Regulation.

Details on documents received and meetings organised by EFSA on the implementation of the Regulation can be found on EFSA’s website.
