I have a long career within food safety starting in 1974 at the National Food Administration dealing, at various times, with risk management as well as risk assessment.
My present situation at the Dept. of Toxicology and Risk aAssessment started in 1980. Meanwhile I have been seconded as detached national expert for three years (1987-1990) at the European Commission serving as scientific secretary to the former Scientific Committee on Food (SCF)- From 2003 to 2008 I was Head of Unit of the EFSA unit supporting the Scientific Panel on food additives, flavourings, processing aids and materials in contact with food (the AFC Panel), which has later in 2008 been split into two new Panels, Panel on food additives and nutrient sources added to food (ANS Panel) and Panel on food contact materials, enzymes, flavourings and processing aids (CEF Panel).
Since my departure from EFSA I have been invited as expert to the working group on food additives and nutrient sources of the ANS Panel.
