Scientific Advisory Committee

In the Committee both food expertise, product technology and knowledge and expertise relating to consumer behaviour are represented. The Committee's secretariat is headed by RIVM.

The Scientific Advisory Committee was set up by the Minister for Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS).

The Scientific Advisory Committee assesses the chain agreements as regards their ambitions and relevance and gives its opinion about agreements made previously by the product sectors. If a product sector does not conclude agreements or concludes these tardily with regard to the ambitions set, the Scientific Advisory Committee will propose maximum contents. These are then submitted to the Steering Group for consultation.

The Scientific Advisory Committee advises the Steering Group.
