A Technical Service is the provision of scientific information, or a process that produces scientific information, for the use of managers and policy-makers. The service may include recommendations made by individual, or groups of, scientists, but it does not include a recommendation on behalf of ICES (except to reiterate a recommendation previously made by ACOM or by former ICES advisory committees).

Technical Services thus do not constitute ICES approved advice. They do, however, share the following characteristics:

• Scientific objectivity and integrity;

• Quality assurance, including peer review as appropriate;

• Transparency.
