European Commission Scientific Committee on Food

The Scientific Committee on Food (SCF) is one of the Committees providing the European Commission with scientific advice on food safety. This Committee, composed of independent scientists, was established in November 1974, and transferred to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in May 2003.

The SCF is mandated to address "scientific and technical questions concerning consumer health and food safety associated with the consumption of food products and in particular questions relating to toxicology and hygiene in the entire food production chain, nutrition, and applications of agrifood technologies, as well as those relating to materials coming into contact with foodstuffs, such as packaging."
