The Government Chemist has recently published its strategy for 2023-2026.
The Government Chemist programme is delivered as part of the National Measurement System programme portfolio overseen by the Department of Science, Innovation and Technology.
Informed by horizon scanning activities, the current regulatory framework, government food strategies and a stakeholder workshop conducted in June 2022, the Government Chemist Strategy focuses on four strategic aims:
- Protecting consumers in increasingly challenging times
- Supporting business and government across the four nations of the UK
- Collaboratively building a resilient national skills base
- Maximising UK measurement expertise to address global challenges.
