Science Council

The FSA Science Council is an independent expert committee of the Food Standards Agency, comprising a Chair and 10-12 expert members across a range of specialisms. It provides high-level, expert strategic insight, challenge and advice to the FSA's Chief Scientific Adviser and to the Board and executive of the FSA on the FSA's use of science to deliver FSA objectives. Its purpose is to help ensure that the FSA identifies, sources, integrates and uses the best scientific evidence and expertise from all relevant disciplines to inform and evaluate its work.
