Principles for Public Sessions 

The following principles are a guide to determining what matters will be considered in a public session by a Board:

  • Boards will normally discuss all matters relating to a standard—including those relating to its development, such as:
    • any discussion or consultation papers;
    • exposure drafts;
    • related international Board papers and discussions; as well as
    • stakeholder views.
  • Boards may consider some matters relating to a standard in a non-public session.  Examples include;
    • Commercial confidentiality 
    • Personal privacy issues
    • Material being discussed has been externally produced and the authors have applied a confidential status to that material;  
    • The material is the subject of non-public government decision-making processes; 
    • Discussion of the matter in public is likely to result in legal prejudice; or
  • Boards will normally consider the following matters in a non-public session.  Those relating to:
    • their general functioning;
    • their membership; and
    • the governance or management of the XRB, including:
      • corporate planning and strategy;
      • organisational performance;
      • staffing matters;
      • declaration of interests; and
      • budgetary and financial matters.
