Board Compliance Review Committee

When the Inspection Function closed on 19 August 2004, the Inspection Committee ceased its functions. It has been restructured as the Board Compliance Review Committee under the Accountability Mechanism.

The Board Compliance Review Committee (BCRC) is a standing committee consisting of 6 Board members: 4 regional members (at least 3 of whom must be from borrowing countries) and 2 non-regional members.

BCRC is responsible for the following under the ADB Accountability Mechanism which became effective on 24 May 2012:

  • clear the CRP‘s proposed TOR for compliance review before they are released by the CRP;
  • review the CRP’s draft compliance review reports;
  • review the CRP’s draft reports on monitoring implementation of remedial actions approved by the Board as a result of a compliance review before the CRP finalizes them;
  • decide and adjust the CRP monitoring time frames;
  • review and endorse the combined CRP and OCRP annual work plan and budget;
  • search for CRP members in consultation with the President;
  • provide written feedback to all CRP members on their performances — the feedback of the CRP Chair will be taken into consideration in the feedback to other CRP members;
  • in case of a borrowing country’s rejection of a CRP site visit, dialogue with Management on the reasons for the borrowing country’s refusal; and
  • serve as the focal point for the CRP’s communication and dialogue with the Board on the Accountability Mechanism.
