News of 07/07/2015

It was a busy year for ANSES both in terms of scientific output and institutional activities. The ANSES activity report published today provides a detailed account of the events and achievements of 2014, and illustrates the Agency's wide range of activities. 

 

2014 was an important step in the history of ANSES.  Firstly, it marked the culmination of our efforts to bring together all of the Maisons-Alfort staff on a single site, in and around the brand new Copernic building, located at the centre of the Alfort National Veterinary School campus. 

As of 1 July 2015, after five years in operation, the Agency’s scope of expertise is being broadened. The French Act on the future of agriculture, food and forestry, adopted on 13 October 2014, entrusts ANSES with the responsibility for issuing marketing authorisations for plant protection products, adjuvants, fertilisers and growing media.

The year 2014 was also marked by scientific work on: exposure to five endocrine disruptors and reprotoxic substances, the risks of consuming food supplements, population exposure to pollen, bee health, nanomaterial toxicity, antimicrobial resistance in the animal health field, and the risks linked to 3D technologies.

To find out more about all of the key events of the year, the 2014 activity report is now online. Here is a sample of what you will find in it: the launches of the third national food consumption survey (INCA3) and the first national study for understanding home pesticide use (Pesti’home), the French Agency for Veterinary Medicinal Products’ 20-year anniversary celebration, the signing of new partnership agreements, new reference mandate assignments for the laboratories, the first summary report on the nutrivigilance scheme, three years after its creation, and an account of the Agency's participation in the World Equestrian Games in Normandy.
