This document sets out the findings of the Triennial Review of the Coal Authority. It describes the purpose of Triennial Reviews and the processes adopted for this review.

Triennial Reviews are a Cabinet Office process for reviewing the function of Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs), the appropriateness of the bodies’ delivery mechanisms and their governance arrangements.

The 2 stages of the Triennial Review are:

  • an examination of the Coal Authority’s main functions and consideration of whether they are still needed
  • a review of the Coal Authority’s control and governance arrangements to make sure the Authority is operating in line with recognised principles of good corporate governance
