The Advisory Panel on Consumer Prices – Technical (APCP Technical) provides independent advice to the National Statistician on technical aspects of consumer price indices.
The establishment of the APCP Technical was recommended by an independent review of the governance of price statistics, which considered matters relating to the governance arrangements and structures underpinning the production of consumer price indices by the Office for National Statistics.
The report also recommended the creation of an Advisory Panel on Consumer Prices – Stakeholder, to provide advice to the National Statistician on the uses and application of the statistics. These recommendations were accepted by the Board of the UK Statistics Authority in February 2014.
