JACE meets formally twice per year. It is chaired by HSE and its attendant membership is drawn mainly from industry trade bodies, trades unions, large event facilities and the major national broadcasting organisations. It has a broad membership and its agreed minutes show the Committee's discussions can cover a wide variety of topics across the entertainments industry. Membership is decided by JACE itself. There is also a facility for electronic membership, where interested parties can receive copies of minutes etc. There is occasional attendance by other bodies, generally by invitation to address the Committee.
The Committee has a number of aims:
JACE may occasionally convene ‘task and finish’ working groups to research particular areas or to produce guidance for one or other industry on behalf of the Committee or a particular industry sector. This is done at the discretion of JACE, as is the scope and membership of the working groups. Outside expertise / opinion may be sought if needed.
The Secretariat for JACE is provided by HSE. Further detail can be obtained from:
