Panel on Biological Hazards

The Panel on Biological Hazards assesses issues on microbiological food hygiene, contamination of food by human pathogen microorganisms and transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. The Panel also assesses the development of resistance against antimicrobials and disinfectants including transmission of resistance genes to pathogenic microorganisms.

Micro-organisms in fertilising products - impacts on health and biodiversity

Can the use of micro-organisms in fertilising products have negative impacts on biodiversity and human, plant and animal health? The Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA) and the Norwegian Environment Agency have requested the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) to assess the potential impacts to biodiversity and health stemming from the import and use of four groups of organisms.
