Structure and Consortium bodies
The Consortium operates through the following bodies:
General Assembly: The founding General Assembly of the Consortium took place on 11 June 2008. The second meeting was held on Wednesday, 7 October 2009. This is the supreme body for decisions. Voting rights are given on the basis of a complex system of calculation, run by an independent Trustee and based on the tonnages produced or imported.
Steering Committee: The daily operations of the Consortium are decided upon by the Steering Committee which was elected by the General Assembly for the first time on 11 June 2008.
The members of the Steering Committee are:
Mike Proctor (Dow Corning)
Technical Working Groups: All technical activities in preparation for and updating of the registration dossiers are dealt with in the following Technical Working Groups (TWG):
Secretariat: The Consortium has concluded a service agreement with EUROALLIAGES to provide the consortium Secretariat. The Consortium is treated as a separate entity from EUROALLIAGES itself.
The team in charge at EUROALLIAGES is:
Inès Van Lierde – Secretary General: overall coordination
Catherine Conty – Executive Assistant
Nadia Vinck – Director EHS & Scientific Issues: technical and scientific issues
Trustee: The Consortium has entrusted the certified accountants firm of BST with the handling of all the confidential production and/or import figures needed for the calculation of the fees and the voting rights. The system guarantees that the individual member figures can not be accessed by any other member company nor anyone else, whether or not involved in the Consortium's activities.
Auditor: The Consortium accounts are audited by an audit firm.
