The Board may form Board Committees to help it undertake its role. Each Board Committee will have Terms of Reference, determined by the Board, which provide details as to the purpose of the Committee, its composition, and other requirements and may include authority delegated by the Board to make decisions on behalf of the Board.

The Board may abolish any Committee it has formed (except for those specified in the Rules) and remove any member from a Committee.
