Press Release: New Appointments to the Regulatory Policy Committee.
Michael Gibbons has been appointed Chair of the Regulatory Policy Committee (RPC) after an open competition which followed the Commissioner for Public Appointments’ Code of Practice. In addition, seven Members have been appointed to the Committee. They are:
• Alexander Ehmann
• Jeremy Mayhew
• Professor David Parker
• Dr Ian Peters
• Martin Traynor
• Sarah Veale
• Ken Warwick
The RPC has been an ad hoc advisory committee for two years. Recognising its importance to the regulatory agenda, the Government recently reconstituted RPC as an advisory non-departmental public body (NDPB) sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).
The RPC will continue to provide expert, independent advice on the quality of analysis and evidence supporting policy decisions on new regulatory and deregulatory proposals prior to submission to the Reducing Regulation Committee (RRC), a Cabinet sub-committee.
