  1. A STAC:
    • Is an advisory group – it does not make decisions.
    • Primarily advises the RP particularly where there may be significant wider and/or long-term health and environmental consequences that require a range of scientific and technical expertise to be coordinated.
    • May be preceded by, or work alongside, specific coordination arrangements relating to particular hazards or specific types of emergencies.
    • Needs to understand and then assess through exercising what it will do and how it fits into wider plans.
    • Needs to remain adaptable and flexible.
