The ICC Board held its first meeting of 2016 at the ICC Headquarters in Dubai on 3 February. Among the decisions made and reports received were:
Review of the ICC’s constitution and governance structures
The Board considered amendments that had been made to the ICC’s constitution in 2014 and agreed that, in order to avoid any potential conflicts of interest and to follow best practice principles of good governance, it would seek to re-establish as quickly as possible the ‘independent’ position of ICC Chairman.
As such, the Board unanimously agreed to propose to the Full Council that a new Chairman should be elected by the Board for a two-year term commencing at the June 2016 Board meeting through a secret balloting process overseen by the ICC’s independent Audit Committee Chairman.
