Agenda and minutes

Please note that prior to 2017, the Cochrane Governing Board was known as the Cochrane Steering Group (CSG).

Documents submitted for the Board's consideration are either open access, in which case they can be shared with people outside of the Board and Senior Management Team, or restricted access, in which case they must not be shared with people outside of the Board or Senior Management Team in any format, either in whole or in part. Cochrane endeavours to be as open and transparent as possible in its business and so the majority of documents are made available open access. However, where information is confidential or commercially sensitive, it will be restricted. Documents that were restricted before a meeting may subsequently be made available open access following a Board meeting at the Board’s discretion if the restriction is time-sensitive only.

Meeting minutes follow the same format as background documents: a full restricted access version is made available to the Board and Senior Management Team; an open access version is published on the Cochrane Community website following the Board’s approval.
