The Council has two types of committee: standing committees and working group committees. Standing committees are established on a long term basis to handle particular areas of ongoing work. Working group committees are established for a defined period of time and will generally focus on the development of a particular guideline, lasting only until this work is finished.
Working group committees
The Council currently has five working group committees.
Their work includes:
- engaging with stakeholders
- ensuring the Council has the knowledge & research it needs
- considering relevant policy issues
