A2.3 Composition of the Monitoring and Registration Committee
The Monitoring and Registration Committee (MaRC) consists of two Co-Convenors and seven or eight members. One of the Co-Convenors must be a member of the Steering Group. Both Co-Convenors must be nominated by the Co-Chairs of the Steering Group and approved by the full Steering Group. Members of the MaRC are proposed by the entity Executives to the MaRC Co-Convenors and approved by the full Steering Group. (If the MaRC member proposed is not a member of the entity Executive, a good communication plan should be in place.) The MaRC consists of at least two Cochrane Review Group (CRG) representatives, a Field representative, a Methods Group representative, a Centre representative, and a Consumer Network representative (some of whom will be members of the Steering Group). Non-elected members will be appointed as required; these appointments also require the approval of the full Steering Group. The Editor in Chief is a non-elected member of the MaRC because of the potential for overlap relating to CRG issues.
