The COMET experiment, currently under construction at J-PARC, is designed to search for the the neutrinoless flavour-changing charged-lepton process μ- + A → e- + A, which is a promising channel to look for new physics. The experiment will make use of the high-power proton beam available at the J-PARC Main Ring to achieve a sensitivity orders of magnitude better than the current limits. The experiment will be staged, with ‘Phase-I’ scheduled to begin commissioning soon while the ‘Phase-II’ design is refined in parallel. A description the design of both Phases is presented, along with the latest developments.
