About our commission board

Our Commission Board, made up of our commissioners and executive team, meets regularly to talk about our plans and how we’re making them happen.

The Commission Board also holds informal commissioner days, to look at particular issues in more detail.

We publish the minutes of these meetings so you can understand more about what we do.

Upcoming meetings

The meetings in 2019 and 2020 will be taking place on:

  • 17 July 2019 (Commissioner Day)

  • 30 October 2019 (Commissioner Day)
  • 4 December 2019

Our Commission Board do have unscheduled meetings, if they need to discuss something urgent or there is an emergency.

Publishing meeting minutes

We publish minutes once our commissioners have reviewed and approved them at the meeting after the minutes were taken.


We sometimes have to make redactions to the minutes, where we remove certain information. We make redactions if the information:

  • will be published in the future
  • relates to a policy that we are still developing
  • is sensitive, because we have received it in our role as a regulator
  • relates to enforcement actions
  • could be sensitive for another reason

We make any redactions we’ve made clear, by including a summary. This summary will include either an overview of our redactions, or our reasons for redacting the information.
