These committees operate according to agreed terms of reference, which are reviewed annually by the Board.

32. The Board may from time to time establish other committees and panels.

33. The appointment of Commissioners and employees to committees and advisory groups shall be a matter for the Chair, and effective following the approval of the Board (except where an advisory group is established by the Chair).

34. Dates and venues of committee meetings shall be set in advance and notified to all Commissioners. Such meetings shall be known as ordinary committee meetings.
