Applications are open to appoint new members to our Register of Specialists

The Register of Specialists is a list of pre-approved experts who we may use to commission short pieces of ad hoc science and technical work under contract.
Last updated

We want to expand the Register to bring in new experts and to cover new areas of expertise and types of work. 

This includes provision of evidence, analysis or expert advice to inform our work and that of our Scientific Advisory Committees on risk assessment and other scientific issues, and other technical advice to inform risk management decisions.

In addition, we need experts to provide peer review and appraisal of research questions, research proposals, materials and outputs, and provide other forms of expert advice. The Register covers all areas of expertise relevant to our remit across the natural, analytical and social sciences. 

Your work will contribute directly to ensuring the safety of food, benefitting UK consumers and the effective, evidence-based regulation of food. 

If you would like to be considered for the Register, please see the application form and the information pack.  If you are selected to join the Register, we will be able to approach you directly to undertake specific pieces of work.
