Science & research

All of our decisions are based on evidence. We support and use relevant research and ensure that our policy decisions allow consumers to make informed choices. We also work with a number of independent scientific committees.

Our approach to science

We’re open about the scientific evidence and analysis behind our decision-making and advice. This includes uncertainties, gaps or assumptions, how we’ve used the evidence, and any other factors. All our scientific evidence and analysis is scrutinised and challenged by experts and other stakeholders.

We make our evidence and analysis available for further use by the science community and other stakeholders.
