To inform its Resilience Study scoping report the Commission undertook an initial consultation inviting evidence that would help determine the desired approach to take on resilience in the second National Infrastructure Assessment, and gather information on sectoral interdependencies.

The consultation ran from 5 March until 1 April 2019 and received 69 responses. The responses are available here. As well as the consultation the Commission ran a number of workshops and held bilateral meetings with relevant groups and organisations; discussions were also held with researchers and technical experts.
