Regulatory science

WikipediaRegulatory science refers broadly to the scientific and technical foundations upon which regulations are based in various industries – particularly those involving health or safety. Regulatory bodies employing such principles in the US include for example the FDA for food and medical products, the EPA for the environment, and OSHA for work safety. “Regulatory Science” is contrasted from regulatory affairs and regulatory law, which refer to the administrative or legal aspects of regulation, in that the former is focused on the regulations’scientific underpinnings and concerns – rather than the regulations’ promulgation, implementation, compliance, or enforcement.
