Industry Membership

INDUSTRY MEMBERSHIP & THE INDUSTRY ADVISORY COMMITTEE

 

2016-2017 Industry Advisory Committee senior representative to the Board of Directors is Dr. Margriet Schoterman of Friesland Campina Innovation, The Netherlands (Margriet.Schoterman@frieslandcampina.com)

What is the role of industry members of ISAPP?

 

ISAPP recognizes that representatives of companies conducting business in the fields of probiotics and prebiotics can provide valuable insight into barriers to success and opportunities for development of this industry. As an organization committed to the advancement of the science of probiotics and prebiotics, ISAPP can benefit from such insight. The Industry Advisory Committee is composed of all representatives of our member companies and serves the purpose of advising the ISAPP Board of Directors on issues of importance to the science of probiotics and prebiotics. The IAC exists in an advisory capacity only and does not hold any voting power or undue influence over the decisions of the Board of Directors of ISAPP. The IAC representatives attending the annual meeting choose one IAC member to liaise with the ISAPP Board of Directors to provide industry perspective on relevant issues. This IAC representative is invited to attend all board meetings (whether in person or by conference call) and chairs the IAC meetings at the ISAPP annual meeting.

 

 

Why should companies join ISAPP ?

 

ISAPP IAC members value their membership in ISAPP for many reasons:

 

IAC dues provide support for ISAPP activities. ISAPP is a credible, science-based voice focused on advancing the science of probiotics and prebiotics. Our all-academic Board of Directors considers industry input but functions independently. ISAPP accomplishments are only possible through funding by our IAC members. If you value these types of activities, then by supporting ISAPP, you ensure that these activities continue. Summaries of ISAPP activities are found here.

 

IAC members can attend the ISAPP annual meeting. Every year, ISAPP holds a by-invitation-only meeting focused on emerging science in probiotics, prebiotics and the microbiome. The meeting combines plenary lectures; small, topical, discussion-based workshops; short, late breaking news talks; student posters; and ample opportunity to network with the top experts in the field. The only industry scientists included in the meeting are from IAC companies. Your membership ensures that you can send up to 2 representatives to the annual meeting. There is no cost for registration, but industry attendees must pay their own travel and accommodations.

 

Some Quotes:

ISAPP membership expands and strengthens our scientific and regulatory network on prebiotics, which can help us in future collaborations.

ISAPP provides an independent voice for scientific excellence, and publishing scientific (positions) papers on particular topics in the field of prebiotics

The annual meeting is very valuable to be informed of the latest developments in science in the field of pro- and prebiotics with excellent speakers.

The annual meeting gives excellent opportunities to network with other companies and scientists.

 

How can a company join the ISAPP Industry Advisory Committee?

 

Companies involved in, or developing involvement in, manufacture of probiotics or prebiotics or products containing them are appropriate for consideration for Industry Advisory Committee membership. Additionally, companies involved more peripherally with the industry will be considered. Overriding principles for inclusion for IAC membership are listed here. Companies should have:

 

  • A science-based approach to probiotic and prebiotic product development
  • A commitment to and funding of related research
  • A commitment to responsible product formulation and communications
  • A commitment to the mission of ISAPP and a willingness to work to toward that mission in a collaborative manner with the ISAPP Board of Directors and other IAC members
  • Willingness to pay established IAC membership fees
  • Willingness to comply with ISAPP Antitrust Compliance Policy

 

Furthermore:

 

  • IAC membership may be limited to assure a working group size conducive to accomplishing established goals
  • The representative of the company sent to participate in the IAC must be a scientist
  • The final decision of inclusion of a company on the IAC shall be made in the discretion of the ISAPP Board of Directors to best meet the needs and maximize the credibility of the IAC. Membership on the IAC may be terminated by the Board of Directors at any time for any reason by a vote of two-thirds of a quorum of the Board

ISAPP Antitrust Compliance Policy

 

It is the policy of the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP) and its Industry Advisory Committee (IAC) members to comply with laws and regulations applicable to their activities.

 

Among other things, ISAPP Board of Directors, the IAC and other participants in ISAPP activities are subject to antitrust laws that prohibit fixing prices, allocating geographic markets, unfair or deceptive practices, setting profit levels; boycotts, and most other anticompetitive actions. ISAPP will neither permit nor condone anti-competitive behavior, whether willful or inadvertent, in connection with any ISAPP activity.

 

It is the duty of all participants in ISAPP activities to actively adhere to antitrust laws and to this Antitrust Compliance Policy. They are required to report to ISAPP Executive Director any activities, conduct or issues connected in any way to ISAPP that appear to involve significant antitrust risk. Furthermore, they shall interrupt and/or discontinue activities or conversations that pose antitrust risk.

 

Additionally, discussion among two or more providers that suggests intentional or unintentional fraudulent activity is illegal. Conversations involving discussion of matters that may violate applicable laws and regulations should always be avoided, even in private settings, and cannot be tolerated in connection with any ISAPP meeting or activity. Persons engaging in possible violations of ISAPP policy during meetings or activities will be required to cease such activities, and if necessary, are subject to ejection by the presiding officer of the meeting.

 

Questions concerning antitrust or other laws or regulations connected to ISAPP activities should be referred immediately to the Executive Director.
