Policy Committee

This committee:

  • Works to provide policy makers and the public with expert opinion on scientific questions related to environmental health policy and the professional practice of environmental epidemiology;
  • Evaluates policy proposals initiated by ISEE members and provides advice regarding course of action;
  • Drafts policy statements and make recommendations regarding policy to the Executive Council. ISEE chapters, other committees, and individual ISEE members; and
  • Initiates consideration of policies to be addressed. 
The highest priority will be addressing policy issues of international relevance; however, issues of concern to single regions or nations may be addressed as long as the Society maintains reasonable geographical balance in addressing policy issues. Only the elected ISEE Executive Council will make formal policy statements on behalf of the Society. Members of the Policy Committee are appointed by the Executive Council to staggered three year terms. The Executive Council will appoint three new members annually. ISEE members who are interested in serving on the Policy Committee can contact the Policy Committee chair or the ISEE Secretariat.
