The Code of practice for scientific advisory committees (CoPSAC) covers all aspects of their governance. It provides guidance on the establishment, management and conduct of committees and sets out their relationship with the bodies they advise.
Code of Practice for Scientific Advisory Committees (CoPSAC) updated to reflect changes in legislation and guidance - in particular revisions to paragraphs on independence, diversity and inclusion, and transparency.
The advice on making public appointments to scientific advisory committees needs to be updated. Those making appointments should contact the Cabinet Office Public Appointments Policy Team (PAPT) for advice.
