Expert groups providing advice to FSANZ

​​​(May 2020)

From time to time FSANZ engages with experts from research agencies, universities industry and other organisations. We work with these experts as members of advisory groups which are formed to focus on specific issues. Read about the main advisory groups we work below.

FSANZ has set up a Scientific Nanotechnology Advisory Group (SNAG) comprising experts in the fields of nanosafety, pharmacology, nano-food technology, toxicology and nanometrology.
