Decision ID: 000692

In October 1996 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee endorsed the policy of the Fund in its use of experts and agreed that it was not possible to lay down any firm criteria for the selection of experts and that it should be left to the Director to decide on the selection of experts for each incident. The Committee did not accept the Spanish delegation’s proposal to instruct the Director to study the establishment of criteria to assess the work done by experts engaged by the Fund, nor to study the development of standard methods to be used by the experts in the assessment of claims.
