The Rules of Procedure sets down, inter alia, the rules for the appointment of the Chair and Vice Chair and the rules of conduct of IORA meetings of the Council of Ministers, the Committee of Senior Officials and other organs established under the Charter of the Association. This mechanism is of vital importance for the decision-making processes of the Association. 

The Rules of Procedure was adopted at the Extraordinary Council of Ministers' Meeting, held in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman on 20-23 January, 2000.  The Rules were recently reviewed and adopted by the Council of Ministers in 2010 in Sana'a, Yemen following the revision of the IORA Charter. 


These Rules of Procedure for the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) will apply to the appointment of Chair and Vice Chair and the organisation of all levels of the IORA meetings, as well as for the meetings of the IORA Organs and Specialised Agencies established under the Association (herein referred to as Council meetings) and will remain effective until amended by the Council of Ministers.
