The setting up of such a Committee was recommended by the Standing Senate Committee on Legal Constitutional Affairs in its Sixteenth Report dated December 1998, wherein the need for an independent advisory committee was deemed necessary to review and advise on the implementation and ongoing administration of the National DNA Data Bank.
