Compliance Review Function

The compliance review focuses on the direct and material harm alleged by project-affected people, and whether this is caused by ADB’s violations of its operational policies and procedures in formulating, processing, or implementing the project.

The compliance review is done by an independent Compliance Review Panel (CRP).

The compliance review starts with the Compliance Review Panel determining the eligibility of a request for compliance review and recommending to the ADB Board of Directors to authorize a compliance review. If approved, the Compliance Review Panel conducts an independent investigation and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors to ensure project compliance, including remedial changes in the scope or implementation of the project. The Compliance Review Panel then monitors the implementation of its recommendations and any remedial actions approved by the Board of Directors.

The Compliance Review Panel is an independent body appointed by the ADB’s Board of Directors to carry out compliance review under the second phase of the ADB Accountability Mechanism. The Compliance Review Panel consists of three members—a full-time Chair and two part-time members. Two Compliance Review Panel members are from regional member countries, with one of them from a developing member country, and the third member from a nonregional country. The Compliance Review Panel reports directly to the Board on all activities except on two specific activities where it reports to the Board Compliance Review Committee.
