Recruitment of experts to Food Standards Agency Advisory Committees


The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is actively seeking to recruit new members for its Scientific Advisory Committees (SAC), in particular the Advisory Committee on Animal Feedingstuffs (ACAF) and the Advisory Committee on the Microbiological Safety Of Food (ACMSF).  Details on how to apply can be found on the FSA website.

The SAC structure will play an increasingly important role in informing future government policy, so it is in the interests of the Agri-supply industries to ensure that there are members with practical experience of the challenges faced to ensure balanced decision making.
