The Committee was established on 28 June 2016. On 15 September 2016 its remit was agreed as:

(b) to coordinate activity across Senedd committees in relation to point (a) above.
(c) to carry out the functions of the responsible committee under Standing Orders 21.8 to 21.11, with a consequential change to the remit of the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee;
