The BoD is a collegiate body accountable to the AGM. The BoD is composed of five to seven Voting members elected by the AGM or co-opted. One of them should be a representative from industry, having no conflict of interest with any Member of the Agency.

Each Voting Member of the Agency can deliver only one voting member for the BoD.

The current BoD consists of 7 voting members:

Previous BoD mandates:

  • Ray Hilditch (26/05/2012 → 31/08/2018)

  • Véronique Sournies (26/05/2012 → 21/05/2016)

 

When "26/05/2012" is mentioned as a starting date of a mandate, it means that the officer was appointed at the start of the Agency. The Agency took the form of an "aisbl" (international non-profit) at that date.
Most probably, the officer served already earlier at the previous ECBE, but this information is currently not published.
