Governance & structure

In 2002 PML became an independent company limited by guarantee (clg) with charitable status; company number 4178503; charity registration number 1091222. We are governed in accordance with charity law by a Board of Trustees, who are also Directors under company law.

Our commitment to excellence extends to our governance arrangements by adopting best practice from the charity sector and from the corporate sector where appropriate.

Our Board membership reflects the need to have both strong scientific as well as business representation (see People for our Board composition).

In addition to the main Board we have four committees:

  • Audit & Finance Committee
  • Innovation Committee
  • Remuneration Committee
  • Science Advisory Council

Would you like to join our Board of Trustees?

We are always open to receiving expressions of interest from those interested in becoming Trustees as vacancies may arise from time to time.
