590.     Tribunal Advisory Committee.

At the same time as it established the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service (HCPTS)1, the Health and Care Professions Council set up a non-statutory Tribunal Advisory Committee (TAC) which consists of six members, three of whom are panel chairs and three independent of the tribunal, none of whom being Council members. The purpose of the TAC is to provide guidance to the tribunal on such matters as the appointment of tribunal panelists, their training and assessment and on practice and procedure.
