The 4 technology appraisal committees are standing advisory committees of NICE. This topic was considered by the chair of committee C and the vice chair of NICE's highly specialised technologies evaluation committee.
Committee members are asked to declare any interests in the technology being evaluated. If it is considered there is a conflict of interest, the member is excluded from participating further in that evaluation.
Each evaluation is assigned to a team consisting of 1 or more health technology analysts (who act as technical leads for the evaluation) and a project manager.
