The Board can set up ad hoc working groups. Such groups shall work within the policy areas and priorities of BSSSC on a demand driven basis, to be determined by the Board. Possible work to be undertaken by the ad-hoc working groups could relate to issues raised by the EU Commission.
Each ad hoc working group shall be chaired by a member of the Board and have a written assignment decided upon by the Board. The working groups shall develop a work plan to be presented to the Board and report to the Board at the Board meetings. The Board may also appoint rapporteurs for specific policy areas.
