Adjustments to the EU RO MR Group structure

Communication requirements, and other elements led to the following internal adjustments: It was acknowledged that the name of the internal governing body of the EU RO MR Group ‘Advisory Board (AB)’ could be misleading. So, the internal governing and managing body was renamed to Steering Committee (SC) from 1 Jan 2017. It is by definition an internal body of EU ROs.
