The Commission has a structured system of operation made up of Committees that assist in discharging its mandate, responsibilities and obligations. The Commission delegates specific functions to selected Committees with defined formal terms of reference, without abdicating its ultimate responsibility. The terms of reference clearly identify matters reserved for the Full Commission and Committees. The Committees make recommendations to the Full Commission, for consideration and adoption/resolution.

The membership and chairmanship of the Committees is regularly reviewed by the Commission. The Commission is cognizant that members collectively have sufficient qualifications and experience to fulfil the duties of the respective Committees. The elected chairpersons appraise the Full Commission meetings of their activities on a regular basis, through oral and/or written reports.
