GAP is governed by consensus, on the basis of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that has been agreed by all members.
The MoU highlights that GAP does not have legal personality, and does not constitute an association of any kind. It also includes the obligation of the companies to comply with competition law when carrying out activities within GAP and to conduct outreach transparently.
Each participating company designates one individual as its responsible participant in GAP. Additional persons are designated to manage the operational aspects of GAP activities.
GAP meets and confers as appropriate to discuss initiatives and progress, and undertakes tasks collectively as agreed, or individually when appropriate in the pursuit of common objectives.
GAP members share the costs of GAP equally.
GAP has registered in the European Commission and European Parliament’s voluntary joint Transparency Register, and complies with all other relevant laws, codes and reasonable expectations on transparency and ethical engagement.
