CEMACH in Northern Ireland is commissioned by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS) through the Health Promotion Agency for Northern Ireland.

The work is governed regionally by a multidisciplinary steering group chaired by the Chief Medical Officer. Northern Ireland contributes to all the CEMACH work programmes, including the maternal death enquiry, perinatal mortality surveillance and is one of the pilot sites for the child death review project.
