Science & Technical Committee

The Science & Technical Committee (STC) focuses on issues of science and technology, informing and guiding the development of FIA policy by reviewing all relevant science and regulatory factors that might influence the outcomes of the association.

The STC leads FIA’s long-term project to secure harmonised food standards throughout Asia. Additionally, it provides timely, expert opinion and technical advice on emerging issues that impact the food and beverage industry.
