RSI: Institute for Regulatory Science

The Institute for Regulatory Science (RSI) is dedicated to the idea that societal decisions and public communications must be based on Best Available Science and Metrics for Evaluation of Scientific Claims derived from it (BAS/MESC). Activities of RSI are principally performed through its Centers.

We operate with a small in-house staff and rely upon a large number of scientists, engineers and other experts chosen from academia, government, and industry. We perform independent peer reviews and independent scientific assessments for government agencies at federal sate and local levels, academia, and the industry. During these activities we encourage the participation of stakeholders.

We have extensive experience in publishing scientific information intended not only for specialists but also for knowledgeable non-specialists, and the general public. We attempt to provide useful information to those who by virtue of election or appointment must have access to credible scientific information. In addition, we anticipate scientific needs of the staff members of national and international organizations as well as the media and use the BAS/MESC to provide them with relevant information.

Our activities related to technical information include a large number of reports resulting form our independent peer reviews, independent scientific assessments, numerous other publications and regularly published information known as the Voice of Science.
