Approved by the Board on: 22 April 2005
The Board decides to change its policy on quality assurance approved at the Third Board Meeting on "option (c)" by replacing the decision on Agenda Item 10(B)(4)(b)(c) with the following and eliminating the last sentence of that decision on the "option (c)" time limit:
The Secretariat will monitor implementation of this decision and report to the Board at the Fourteenth Board meeting.
The budgetary implications are in the amount of up to US$450,000 per year for possible staffing and contracting costs associated with implementation of the decision above. The accuracy of this estimate and the need for additional funds beyond the approved total 2005 budget will be reviewed by the Finance and Audit Committee at its next meeting.
