ages/bullet.jpg> Commission calls on interested parties to submit scientific information on mercury in dental amalgam
The Commission has requested a scientific opinion from the Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) and the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) on possible risks associated with mercury in dental amalgam and possible alternatives.
To ensure that the
two Committees elaborate their opinions on the basis of the most up to date scientific
information, the Commission has published today a call for scientific
information that will run until
The European Commission uses expert advice on risk assessment from three non-food Scientific Committees when preparing policies and proposals. These committees are made up of external, independent scientists and provide authoritative scientific advice in the fields of consumer safety, public health and the environment. The three non-food Scientific Committees are - the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP), the Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) and the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR).
