Corporate Governance Framework

Our corporate governance framework sets out the necessary responsibilities and procedures that guarantee we operate properly.


19. Wherever possible, the Board will reach a consensus on a matter under consideration. Where there is a consensus, there is no need for a vote to be carried out.

20. Exceptionally, where there is not a consensus, the matter shall be determined by a majority of the Commissioners present. A Commissioner absent at the time of the vote may not vote by proxy. In the event of an equality of votes, the Chair shall have a second or casting vote.

21. The procedure for voting shall be a matter for the Chair at the meeting, subject to any decision of a majority of the Board to the contrary, including:

  • the form that voting shall take, whether by a show of hands or by some other means
  • whether or not to record the voting in the minutes to show how each Commissioner present voted or abstained
  • whether Commissioners may ask for his/her dissenting vote to be recorded in the minutes.
