Proposed Regulations for NHS Bodies' Auditor Panels & Audit Committees

Closed 19 Sep 2014

Opened 28 Jul 2014


The Department of Health has developed draft regulations to implement new constitutional requirements for the audit committees (acting as auditor panels) of NHS Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). These are necessary to ensure audit committees are appropriately constituted to advise their governing board/body on the selection, appointment and maintenance of independent relationships with external auditors for their future audit contracts.  The Department is now seeking views on these regulations.  This consultation will run from 28 July to 12 September 2014.
