Advisory Panels for Consumer Price Statistics

In June 2015, the UK Statistics Authority announced the formation of two independent advisory panels on consumer price statistics: a technical panel to advise the National Statistician on technical aspects of the statistics; and a stakeholder panel to provide advice on the uses and applications of price indices.

The announcement followed a review, led by Professor Sir Adrian Smith, which considered matters relating to the arrangements and structures underpinning the production of consumer price statistics. The review report was published in February 2014.
