Members of the European Parliament have proposed changing the name of the nascent European Food Authority, to make it a European Food Safety Authority. The proposal is one of 200 amendments agreed by the parliament's environment committee for approval by a later plenary session. An important focus of these changes is the division of responsibilities between the European Commission and the authority, with MEPs seeking greater clarity between their respective roles. The committee called for risk assessment to be the authority's duty and risk management "the province of the Commission," for instance.
