AOAC Official Methods Board (OMB)

FROM: Delia Boyd, Senior Manager SUBJECT: AOAC SPIFAN Nutrients Expert Review Panel (ERP)

Background: In accordance with the policy for AOAC Official Methods SM First Action, an expert review panel has been assembled to review methods submitted into the AOAC SPIFAN process for priority nutrients. AOAC staff has collected CVs and they are on file at AOAC in accordance with the revised ERP policies and procedures. A proposal for additional members to the AOAC SPIFAN Expert Review Panel is submitted for your consideration.

The attached package contains the following information: CVs for all proposed candidate(s)

 List of Expert Review Panel (ERP) members  Balance of Perspectives  CV of additional member

This expert review panel operates under AOAC policies and procedures. Each expert is required to sign the AOAC Volunteer Acceptance Form which includes adherence to the AOAC policy for Volunteer Conflict of Interest, Antitrust and Use of Association Name, Letterhead and Logo. These documents will be enforced by the Expert Review Panel chair and facilitated by AOAC staff. We request the OMB to review and confirm the expertise of the proposed candidate, also reviewing the balance of the panel as well as the conflicts of interest of proposed members. FYI, Jonathan Draher is currently a member of the AOAC SPIFAN Contaminants Expert Review Panel and a working group member for the requested nutrient (fatty acids at the sn -2 position of triacylglycerol molecules). This Expert Review Panel is scheduled to meet “Virtually” on July 25, 2023. Your review and approval of the panel is requested. Please address questions regarding the attached package to me and thank you for your consideration. Recommendation: To add name(s) for vetting SPIFAN Nutrients Expert Review Panel (ERP)
