Alliance for Risk Assessment Steering Committee
* Affiliations are for identification purposes only. Steering Committee members serve as individuals representing their own personal opinions.
While the management and operation of the ARA is
the responsibility of the ARA Collaborators, a Steering Committee
provides guidance and recommendations for ARA activities. The ARA
Steering Committee’s role is to provide input regarding whether
requested work is likely to benefit public health, whether any clear
conflicts of interest or ethical issues need to be considered, and to
provide guidance on prioritization of work requests. The impact of the
Steering Committee is two-fold. First, input on the issues noted will assist
the ARA Leadership Team in staging work requests in an optimum
manner. Second, the Steering Committee membership provides an opportunity
for involvement of multiple stakeholders, increasing the credibility of
technical products and concurrence of diverse parties. This collaborative
approach driven by non-profit and academic centers is a unique feature of
the ARA process.
The Steering Committee consists of individuals with scientific credentials in risk assessment and related fields and that have current affiliations with diverse stakeholder groups. Steering Committee members serve three-year terms.
