Updated Rules on Conflicts of Interest from EFSA

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published on March 5th the rules related to Declarations of Interest (DOIs) in the framework of its recently adopted Policy on Independence and Scientific Decision-Making Processes. The rules will enter into force as of 1 July 2012, with a 4-month transition period.
 
The new rules provide an explicit and more transparent set of general principles applicable to all those engaging in EFSA’s activities – scientific experts, staff, members of the Management Board and third party organisations, including external contractors.
 
The main new features of the Implementing Rules are:
–          Greater scrutiny and more safeguards
–          Greater clarity and transparency
–          Access to the best scientific expertise while ensuring impartiality
