When the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) makes a recommendation in regard to a nomination, a report is prepared which states the Committee's recommendation and a summary of the evidence supporting it. These reports form the basis for public submissions, in the case of preliminary recommendations, or for the Minister's decision, in the case of final recommendations.

The following recommendations arose from the Committee's meeting in December 2017. Note that the PDF versions provided below are the official signed documents of the SAC.
