India: FSSAI extends term of eight scientific panels and committee by 2 months

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has provided a two-month extension to its eight scientific panels and committee, the terms of which came to an end on May 26, 2012.

While the Authority claimed that the extension would help the panels and the committee to complete some unfinished work, an official informed FnB News that the extensions were provided as FSSAI was not finding the right replacements for the members concerned.

The official explained that forming of fresh scientific panels at this stage would be time-consuming as some important work and related documents being tackled by the panels and the committee were at completion stage.

But he contradicted it with, “The forming of the committee and the panel has been extended based on the responses received for their ads.”
