Advisory process

Follow our advisory process

ICES advice, based on peer-reviewed expert group reports, is prepared in an advice drafting group and approved by the Advisory Committee (ACOM).

​​​​ICES advisory process:

  • A request for advice is received from a client
  • Data are collected by expert groups, which then make assessments and draft a first scientific/technical response to the request
  • Expert group reports are peer-reviewed by independent experts
  • In cases of stock assessments where the benchmark (established assessment method to be used) has been agreed upon, the reviewing is carried out within the expert group and then followed by an advice drafting group
  • The expert group report together with the review is used in the advice drafting group
  • Draft advice prepared by the advice drafting group is discussed and finally approved by the Advisory Committee (ACOM)
  • The advice is delivered to the client.
