Since 2010 the functions and analysis of the RTF have been conducted in accordance with a set of formally approved Guidelines. These guidelines essentially lay out the rules by which the RTF does its analysis. It is an evolving document that is updated and improved alongside the RTF as new topics and problems come under RTF consideration.
This Subcommittee meets to revisit the RTF Guidelines at regular intervals to ensure they are still serving the RTF’s goals and supporting the region. For more information, see the Guidelines webpage here.
The latest version of the RTF Guidelines, along with a workbook where staff and the subcommittee track outstanding guidelines questions and topics can be found below.
