The following outline of a Universal Credit Claimant Commitment, shows how different it is from JSA

UC: Requirement to accept a claimant commitment
"Cooling off period

Second Opinion
A claimant may request a second opinion on the detail and reasonableness of
work availability and work search requirements they have been set. Only one
request is allowed for every new or updated commitment.
This is only relevant to claimants subject to intensive conditionality.
Where a second opinion review means the commitment is amended, the original
date of claim should stand. Where the second opinion review does not amend
the commitment, the claimant should accept the original version and the date of
claim becomes the date of acceptance.

Each time a commitment is updated with new requirements the claimant will have
the ability to ask for a review of their requirements.
This will involve a different person interviewing the claimant to review the
commitment that the claimant has not accepted.
If they decide that the requirements originally set were reasonable,
the claim will be ended and the claimant will need to submit a new claim."
