Technical Committee

GOED's Technical Committee was created to shape the GOED Monograph, to which all GOED members must adhere. The Monograph is a living document that has evolved as the omega-3 industry matures and the Technical Committee provides important feedback to the board and members on its requirements.

Additionally, the Technical Committee monitors testing programs and technical guidelines and regulations from bodies around the world to represent the interests of GOED members in the global market.

The committee is chaired by Bjorn Rene of Golden Omega and has regular conference calls on the first Tuesday of the month. Current committee members are listed below. Please contact Gerard Bannenberg if you're interested in joining.
