Our Mission statement
The protection of human health is at the centre of our work.
Through our independent scientific assessment, research and the transparent communication of health risks, we make an impartial contribution to the safety of foods and feeds, products and chemicals.
We research and advise in order to minimise animal experimentation to an essential minimum and to guarantee the best possible protection level for test animals.
The results of our work promote a factual and social discourse, thus providing decision-makers with a scientifically well-founded basis.
Our work is characterised by an open and respectful approach. Tolerance, reliability and mutual appreciation form our common foundations.
On this basis, we set scientific standards in consumer health protection so that the world becomes a safer place for people to live.
