The RPC committee and secretariat are very pleased to welcome two new committee members who joined the RPC on 18 March 2024.

Stephen Gibson, RPC Chair said: “Caroline and Ryan bring a wealth of highly relevant experience to the RPC committee. This is an exciting time for the RPC with the changes to our role arising from the introduction of the new Better Regulation Framework. I look forward to working with the new and existing members as the committee implements the changes required from the framework review and to continue the RPC’s important independent scrutiny role to improve the quality of evidence and analysis underpinning regulatory decisions.”
