Science Council launch consultation on standards for third party evidence

The FSA’s independent Science Council are holding a consultation on their draft principles and guidelines outlining the standards expected when uncommissioned evidence is received by the FSA outside of our standard processes.

We 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 principles and guidelines aim to summarise expectations for the standard of evidence sent to us by third parties which falls outside of standardised processes, and outline the way in which that evidence will be assessed.  

The consultation will run for four weeks from 22 March 2021 to 22 April 2021.
