Craft committees

Some advisory committees advise the board, (officially known as the Principal Executive Committee or PEC) on issues affecting particular parts of the profession, but they also seek to represent their interests and which are sometimes referred to as craft committees.

The board may delegate detailed consideration of policy issues to craft committees, and may also leave detailed negotiations with government ministers or officials to the committee officers.


It is the board though that authorises policy decisions, or the outcome of negotiations where that is required.

Each country of the UK often has their own version of a particular committee to focus on the issues and political environment affecting them.
