The Governing Board is responsible for the management of the EPC and has all the associated powers.
However, powers relating to the day-to-day management of the EPC are delegated to the Chief Executive, who sits on the Governing Board ex officio and also acts as the EPC's Legal Representative.
The Board's main function, in practice, is to provide strategic direction to the EPC and to monitor and evaluate its operations and the implementation of the strategic plan.
The Chief Executive is accountable to the Board for the good functioning of the EPC.
The Board meets three to four times a year.
