The creation of the EFSA Stakeholder Consultative Platform was agreed by EFSA’s Management Board on June 20 2005. The Platform, composed of EU-wide stakeholder organisations working in areas related to the food chain, meets to assist EFSA in the development of its overall relations and policy with stakeholders. The meeting provides a platform for honest exchange of opinions and ideas.
