Below you will see our core is split into two main areas, namely the General Assembly which comprises of the chairmanship and executive board, together with the National Standards Bodies which represent the CRT within their respective countries. Within each area we have various other divisions some of which we have outlined below.
As part of the organizational structure of the CRT, there is the General Assembly which is the equivalent to the general assembly of any major intergovernmental organization. The difference is that the delegates are corporate businesses, trade professionals, experts and academics and not government officials.The General Assembly is the CRT's supreme governing body. In addition our 'National Standards Bodies', which form key representation in partnering nations, work towards naming delegates to the assembly, which normally meets twice a year in London. Members from countries where there is no national standards body may also be invited to participate.
Chairmanship and Executive Board
The General Assembly elects the Chairman and Vice-Chairman for terms in office.The assembly also elects the Executive Board, responsible for implementing CRT policy, on the Chairman's recommendation, usually achieved though ballot. The Executive Board has 10 members, who serve for two years each respectively.
National Standards Bodies
Representing the CRT in their respective countries, ensuring that the CRT takes account of their national business concerns within their policy recommendations to respective government’s institutions, and organizations within their borders.
National Standards Bodies form the global network which make CRT unique among its global partner’s. CRT members shape their national standards body policies through participation and alert their respective authorities to national or international business concerns.
By participating in the work of CRT National Standards Bodies, members can help shape policy decisions which are the backbone of the CRT. National Standards Bodies are composed of professional business experts who give freely of their time to formulate CRT policy and elaborate its rules.They collectively scrutinize proposed policy initiatives affecting their subject areas and prepare plans for submission to the General Assembly for consideration.
All CRT divisions are developed specifically to assist with the smooth functioning of our organization, all individually in collaboration with one another as well as collectively with external bodies and agencies in order to strengthen our vision of developing a stable system of international trade and commerce both nationally and internationally.
Working towards supporting regional economic integration connecting value chains promoting competitiveness, diversification and providing genuine networking opportunities to external markets promoting growth, strengthening trade and investment, collaborating with external support institutions towards developing a strong growth focused business environment.
We firmly believe that a standardized system of regulation through focused education and development, coupled with our strong international network of National State Bodies setting the policy of professional standards for all our members is a powerful tool towards developing a prosperous international economic climate, also promoting a healthy fiscal position within every sector of trade and commerce.
