comitology
 n.— «In particular, individual Member States, the same as who are undermining EFSA and the role of independent scientific advice in GMO approvals, have called into question a process known as “comitology,” but only where this process applies to biotech crops. Comitology applies to many other areas of EU decision making that fall within safety and risk management, such as pharmaceuticals, food and chemicals.» —“EU member states should focus on implementing existing Community processes” Checktechbio.org Mar. 9, 2006.
