The Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC), is an independent body, established by the Criminal Appeals Act 1995, to investigate possible miscarriages of justice in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

No officials from the Ministry of Justice are members of the CCRC.

All CCRC Commissioners are independent from Government and the Civil Service.

Commissioners are appointed by Her Majesty the Queen on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. Appointments to the CCRC are made in line with the principles of the Cabinet Office’s Governance Code on Public Appointments and are regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments.
