Scrutiny panels are appointed by the States. There are 5 Scrutiny panels and the Public
Accounts Committee which are made up of States members (who are not ministers or assistant
ministers) and some members of the public. These panels carry out detailed investigations
into ministers' work, and can call for papers and witnesses relevant to their investigations.
The Chairmen's Committee brings together the chairmen
of the 5 panels and the Public Accounts Committee
Review Panels are set up with the agreement of the Chairmen’s Committee to review particular proposals, issues or projects. They are made up of States members who are not Ministers or Assistant Ministers. The current Review Panels are listed here.
