Advisory process

How is the advice produced

ICES advice is based on peer-reviewed Expert Group reports, drafted in the Advice Drafting Group, and  approved by the Advisory Committee:
  • The expert groups collect data, make assessments and draft a first scientific/technical response to the request.

  • The reports of all expert groups preparing the basis for ICES advice are peer-reviewed by a group of independent experts.

  • The expert group report together with the reviews is used in the Advice Drafting Group.

  • A draft advice prepared by the Advice Drafting Group is discussed and finally approved by the Advisory Committee (ACOM).

  • In cases of fish stock assessments where a benchmark is available, the review is done within the Expert Group and then followed by an Advice Drafting Group
