Public consultation: DRVs for sodium
EFSA has launched a public consultation on its draft scientific opinion on dietary reference values (DRVs) for sodium. In particular, it is seeking feedback on the way it plans to select and use evidence in its assessment.
As part of the assessment, systematic literature reviews will be conducted on the relationship between sodium intake and health outcomes such as cardiovascular disease and bone health.
EFSA’s Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) has developed a protocol describing the steps to be followed for the collection, selection, appraisal and integration of the evidence.
The protocol was developed in accordance with EFSA’s Prometheus approach to dealing with data and evidence in scientific assessments.
Interested parties are invited to submit comments on the proposed protocol and other parts of the assessment by 12 November 2017.
The draft opinion and protocol will then be revised in light of the comments received and the completed assessment, including recommendations on DRVs, will be made available for a second public consultation.
