Detail of outcome
The main conclusion of the review was that the Committee on Mutagenicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COM) plays a valuable role in providing expert and independent advice across government. COM performs necessary functions and should continue to operate as an advisory non-departmental public body.
The review also contains recommendations to improve performance and governance.
The Department of Health reviews its arm’s length bodies once every 3 years.
This triennial review looks at the form, functions, governance and performance of the Committee on Mutagenicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COM).
We want to know what you think about:
- whether COM needs to continue in its current form
- how it is performing
- whether COM is providing good value
