Commission relies on independent Scientific Committees
When preparing policy and proposals related to consumer safety, health and the environment, the Commission relies on independent Scientific Committees to provide it with sound scientific advice and draw its attention to new and emerging problems. The Scientific Committees can call on additional expertise from a reserve list and a database of experts.
The following two Scientific Committees started their work in April 2016:
- Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS)
- Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER)
Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS)
The Committee provides Opinions on health and safety risks (chemical, biological, mechanical and other physical risks) of non-food consumer products (e.g. cosmetic products and their ingredients, toys, textiles, clothing, personal care and household products) and services (e.g. tattooing, artificial sun tanning).
Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER)
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.
The SCHEER shall also provide Opinions on risks related to pollutants in the environmental media and other biological and physical factors or changing physical conditions which may have a negative impact on health and the environment, for example in relation to air quality, water, waste and soil, as well as on life cycle environmental assessment.

Remember to follow the experts advise
For some time now -and with increasing emphasis- dermatologists and pharmacists have been making people aware of the need to maintain a sensible and responsible attitude towards the sun. Not only in summer but at all times of the year. It is important in fact to protect ourselves every time we go out into the street.
The most frequent consequence of bad exposure to the sun is sunburn. Sunburn, when mild, causes reddening or sensitivity on the skin, affecting the most superficial layers. But if the exposure is more intense, damage may occur in the deeper layers, reaching the dermis in the case of second-degree burns that may be accompanied by blisters, edema and pain.
That is why it is so important to follow the advice of the expert voices. Remember:
- Never get your skin exposed directly to the sun rays. Use the adequate sunscreen for your skin type to protect you.
- Avoid the hours of máximum solar radiation. And if you can't due to your working responsabilities, use protection clothes such as gloves and a protective visor or hat.
