II.1.4)Short description:

Objectives:

• identify and prioritise EFSA’s needs in terms of chemical monitoring and surveillance data for future chemical risk assessment;

• identify all possible data sources for the prioritised data through horizon scanning;

• propose modifications to the existing data generation pipelines to make these data sources fit for use in chemical risk assessment, derive recommendations for new data generation to deliver fit for purpose data to fill the identified data gaps and identify opportunities for data harmonisation and data sharing.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The project has a total duration of two years and addresses the following objectives:

• identify and prioritise EFSA’s needs in terms of chemical monitoring and surveillance data for future chemical risk assessment. This will be achieved through identification of data gaps in previous opinions and consultation (e.g., through surveys and interviews) with the different scientific units of EFSA involved in human health risk assessment (HHRA), animal health risk assessment (AHRA), and environmental risk assessment (ERA) of chemicals;

• identify all possible data sources for the prioritised data through horizon scanning (e.g., through interviews, surveys, literature reviews, crowdsourcing but not necessarily restricted to those) where all relevant partners of EFSA will be consulted, and existing repositories and output of other projects will be considered. This should build on the analysis previously performed for the Feasibility study on a common open platform on chemical safety data. The data sources will be mapped to the data needs, assessed in terms of data accessibility, quality, format, and others, if needed, and organised in an inventory;

• propose modifications to the existing data generation pipelines to make these data sources fit for use in chemical risk assessment, derive recommendations for new data generation to deliver fit for purpose data to fill the identified data gaps and identify opportunities for data harmonisation and data sharing. The recommendations will be summarised in an external scientific report that will cover HHRA, AHRA, and ERA and synergies among them.
