Objective
With this procurement call, EFSA wants to obtain a comprehensive literature overview on several of the risk assessment-related issues identified during EFSA's workshop. Detailed consideration on RNAi potentially relevant for the food/feed risk assessment and ERA of RNAi-based GM plants and derived food/feed products can be found in tender specifications. The outcome of this systematic literature search/literature overview will deliver baseline data that could provide value to future food/feed risk assessments and environmental risk assessments of RNAi-based GM plants and derived food/feed products.
