What is the Scientific Guidance Panel?
The nine-member Scientific Guidance Panel, consisting of expert scientists appointed by the Governor and the State Legislature, plays a major role in Biomonitoring California. Panel members provide scientific review of the Program design and implementation, and make recommendations on the chemicals to be biomonitored.
By law the panel meets at least three times a year. Panel meetings are open to the public and are conducted in accordance with the Bagley-Keene Open Meetings Act. Many of the meetings can be attended remotely via video or audio webcast.
