The FSA Science Council held a consultation on their draft principles and guidelines, which outline minimum standards expected for un-commissioned evidence sent to the FSA.
The FSA are committed to ensuring that all policies, decisions and advice are based on the best available scientific evidence and analysis, from a range of different sources.
The draft principles and guidelines prepared by the Science Council aim to outline expectations for the standard of un-commissioned evidence FSA receives from external sources and the way in which that evidence will be assessed.
The consultation responses are provided below along with the Science Council response.
If you have any questions about the process, or the principles and guidelines themselves, please email the Science Council secretariat.
