SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE ON HEALTH, ENVIRONMENTAL AND EMERGING RISKS (SCHEER)
Owner/Developer: European Commission (EC)
The SCHEER, on request of Commission services, provides Opinions on questions concerning health, environmental and emerging risks.
In particular, the Committee provides Opinions on questions concerning emerging or newly identified health and environmental risks and on broad, complex or multidisciplinary issues that require a comprehensive assessment of risks to consumer safety or public health and related issues not covered by other European Union risk assessment bodies. Examples of areas of activity include potential risks associated with: antimicrobial resistance; new technologies such as nanotechnologies; medical devices including those incorporating substances of animal and/or human origin; tissue engineering; blood products; fertility reduction; physical hazards such as noise and electromagnetic fields; the interaction, synergic effects and cumulative effects of risk factors and methodologies for assessing new risks. It may also be invited to address risks related to public health determinants and non-transmissible diseases.
