from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Scientific Committee on Food (Engl. Scientific Committee on Food - SCF) was founded in 1974 by the European Community set up (EC) and is now an institution of the EU . He advises the European Commission on the protection of the health and safety of people on all problems that could arise from the consumption of food, in particular with regard to nutrition, hygiene and toxicological issues.

It is one of eight scientific committees in the EU and has been under the Directorate General for Health and Consumer Protection since 1997 . In 2003 the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in Parma took over the tasks of the SCF.
