The BSSSC has since many years appointed Rapporteurs for specific topics among its board members – especially in areas not covered by working groups. The rapporteurs have given oral reports and information in the Board meetings. Some
rapporteur tasks have been taken care of by civil servants supporting the board members.
Based on the BSSSC long term strategy and the BSSSC bi-annual work plan prepared by the Chairmanship – the Board will agree on a distribution of responsibilities among its members. Both Board members and civil servants can be
given the role as Rapporteur to the Board on specific policy areas and tasks. Ad hoc Rapporteurs and Rapporteurs to relevant Baltic Sea Region (BSR) organisations and
programmes may also be appointed.
