Article 11 of the BoR Rules of Procedure provides that the BoR may decide to create EWGs to assist BEREC with the performance of its tasks and functions. That provision also requires the designation of each Chair of the EWG by the BoR. In order to implement the BEREC WP 2014 the BoR already decided to establish 12 EWGs, the chairs of which were nominated by Decision BoR/2014/1. During the Dublin plenary meeting it was announced that the nominated Chair of the Remedies EWG from Ofcom was not able to continue to chair the Remedies EWG. In the light of the provisions of the last paragraph of the decision mentioned above the BEREC Chair appointed Ms Marina Gibbs from Ofcom as a Chair on an interim bases until the next BoR meeting, scheduled for 25-26 September 2014. According to the rules in place the Chair proposed to the BoR to consider positively her nomination on a permanent basis as a chair to that EWG and therefore tabled a proposal for amendment of the BoR decision mentioned above.
