Decision making

DDEX attempts as much as possible to have decisions taken at Plenary Meetings and Working Group Meetings to be unanimous. However, this is not always possible, so, when necessary decisions are taken by consensus. DDEX broadly speaking uses the International Organisation for Standards (“ISO”) definition of consensus which is described in the DDEX Operating Agreement as the absence of sustained opposition to substantial issues by any important part of the concerned interests and by a process that involves seeking to take into account the views of all parties concerned and to reconcile any conflicting arguments. Consensus need not imply unanimity and is declared, if necessary, by the relevant Chair”.
