The Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment has a very broad remit over policy areas which impinge on the lives of citizens in every corner of the country. It has an oversight role regarding a number of regulatory bodies such as the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER), the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) and the Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg).


The committee's name was changed from the Joint Committee on Communications, Climate Change and Natural Resources on Thursday, 29 September 2016.
