Science Council consultation on draft principles and guidelines for un-commissioned third-party evidence

  • Consultation Status: Open
  • Duration: from midday Monday 22 March 2021 to midnight on 22 April 2021

The FSA Science Council are holding 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.

If you would like your voice to be heard and influence the development of these principles and guidelines then please take some time to look through the draft linked to below, and fill in the online form.  Please feel free to share this consultation with others who you think may have an interest.

If you have any questions about the process, or the principles and guidelines themselves, please email the Science Council secretariat.
