Its overall role is to respond on behalf of the ACB on all scientific matters of relevance to the practice of Clinical Biochemistry. The chair will ensure that this role is performed in a prompt and effective way, in line with the interests of the Association. The Committee also ensures that prominence is given to scientific issues within the Association, and that any important scientific matters are brought to the attention of Council and the Members of the Association.

On behalf of the ACB the Committee liaises on scientific issues with other external bodies, including Regulatory Authorities, the  National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) & Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN), the Royal College of Pathologists, specialist associations and the European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (EFLM) & the International Federation for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) so ensuring that the interests of the Association are upheld during these interactions.
