The Board has established a number of Committees, each with its own delegated authority defined in terms of reference. These terms are reviewed periodically and the Board receives reports and copies of minutes of Committee meetings. The Board appoints the members of all principal Board Committees, having received the recommendations of the Nominations Committee.
The principal Committees, together with their terms of reference and a link to a summary of their activities (as detailed in our latest Annual Report), are detailed below:
|Nominations Committee||Terms of reference||Activities|
|Audit Committee||Terms of reference||Activities|

- the Corporate and Social Responsibility Committee, which can be found under Corporate responsibility and in the Directors' report.
* The last meeting of the Corporate Governance Committee was held on 6 May 2015. From August 2015, its activities have been transferred to the Board of Directors.
