10. Forward Look

The National Committee will continue to provide oversight of the progress made on implementing Bonomy's recommendations, will monitor the progress and implementation of the recommendations made by Dame Elish Angiolini and will continue to revise the Code of Practice annually.

The Forms and Record Keeping sub group will continue to be involved in developing the new cremation forms as part of the regulations on cremation for the Burial and Cremation (Scotland) Act 2016.

To reflect the updated Terms of Reference the title of the Committee will be changed to the 'National Committee on Burial and Cremation'.

The Committee has now been carrying out its work for two years. In light of this membership will be reviewed by the Scottish Government.
