Publication of FSS opinion and consultation on applications for authorisation of six novel foods

Closes 11 Feb 2022

Opened 17 Dec 2021

Overview

This consultation is to seek stakeholders’ views, comments and feedback in relation to the Food Standards Scotland (FSS) opinion and regulated product applications considered in this document, which have been submitted for authorisation. We ask stakeholders to consider any relevant provisions of retained EU law and other legitimate factors (other evidence further supporting clear, rational and justifiable risk analysis, such as consumer interests, technical feasibility and environmental factors) that the FSS and Food Standards Agency (FSA) have identified as relevant to these applications. 

The document publishing the FSS opinion incorporates the quality assurance of risk assessments conducted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) of six novel foods as outlined in the annexes.

Why your views matter

This is stakeholders’ opportunity for input on the advice given to Ministers to inform decision making. The FSS opinions, and the views gathered through this consultation, will be considered and included alongside those of Officials in UK Government include FSA and Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), Northern Ireland, England and Wales to inform Ministers’ decision making on whether to authorise the individual novel foods for use in Scotland, England and Wales.
