The European Food Safety Authority management board has nominated Catherine Geslain-Lanéelle as its future executive director. She will be formally appointed after her hearing in the European Parliament.

The nomination comes from candidates short-listed by the European Commission. Geslain-Lanéelle is currently regional director of agriculture and forestry for the Ile de France Region and vice-president of EFSA management board.

Before a formal appointment can be made, the nominee for the post of executive director shall appear before the European Parliament in order to make a statement and answer questions put forward by Members. 

It is understood that the hearing in front of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee of the European Parliament will take place later this month.
