Added: Wednesday 26 August 2015

The European Commission has issued a statement on a recent decision relating to its scientific committees. The statement says that there is a need to modify and improve the current structure of the scientific commitees and that two of them should be merged to avoid duplication of efforts. The Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) will now merge with the  Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) to form a new Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER).
