Standing committees are considered to be committees where there is delegation from the governing body to undertake particular functions and where the committee has its own authority to make decisions and take action.
Note: It is recommended that organisations have in place established procedures and guidance regarding the capture of official sets of committee minutes, papers and associated correspondence into recordkeeping systems and the management and disposal of a committee member's own copies of committee records once membership ceases.
