    Abstract

    The Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) are a set of recommended nutrient intakes used to assess dietary requirements of population groups or, for some NRVs individuals, and are health-based guidance values. The current NRVs for Australia and New Zealand were published in 2006 (NHMRC 2006) after a comprehensive review process commissioned by the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) and the New Zealand Ministry of Health (MoH). The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), which carried out the review, recommended that these recommendations be reviewed every five years. In 2011
    DOHA, now the Department of Health (Health), in consultation with the NZ MoH
    commissioned a scoping study for undertaking a review of the NRVs. This resulted in the development of a Methodological Framework for the review by Nous and a consortium of experts (Department of Health 2015). The Methodological Framework includes criteria to be met in order to trigger a review.
