The Challenge Advisory Panel was formed to provide advice to Government on the Chemicals Management Plan Challenge to industry and other stakeholders. In particular, the Panel will consider specific questions involving the application of the precautionary principle and a weight of evidence approach to assessments of the high priority substances that are part of the Challenge program. Panel members are independent experts from such fields as the precautionary principle, chemical policy, chemical production and economics, environmental and health risks, environmental and biological sciences, environmental health social movements, health and Aboriginal communities, chemicals and health and safety, and health care planning and delivery. The Panel provides advice only; decision-making remains the responsibility of the Government.
The list of Members and the Terms of Reference are available online. Meeting summary reports and corresponding responses from government are available upon request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
