Our 2024 work programme
ANSES's new work programme puts into perspective the principal activities of the Agency for 2024, in light of strategic orientations in our five main fields of action: food, animal health & welfare, environmental health, plant health and occupational health. Having been the topic of discussions with the International Science Council and ANSES’s Scientific Board, it will ensure the continuation and development of ANSES's activities, in support of public action.
New missions covering the safety of cosmetics and tattoos
Since 1 January 2024, ANSES has been responsible for vigilance and expert appraisal relating to cosmetics and tattoo products. These missions, which were previously the responsibility of the French Health Products Safety Agency (ANSM), have been transferred to ANSES by legislation, in line with the orientations of its 2023–2027 goals and performance contract with the State. They are fully consistent with the Agency's powers regarding assessment of the risks of chemicals to which people are exposed on a daily basis.
