Scientific integrity and independence

A robust and transparent process can mitigate against accusations of a lack of integrity or of bias in reporting.

MCCIP is an independent provider of evidence for policy-makers, reporting information impartially and objectively to ensure scientific integrity and independence in its products. MCCIP uses a four-step process to aid in its reporting.
