WHAT ARE OUR GUIDELINES?

Our Governing Documents
The governing bodies of IEEE and the IEEE-Standards Association (IEEE-SA) are responsible for maintaining and overseeing a number of governing documents. These documents establish roles, responsibilities, authority and processes for IEEE. While the documents themselves are robust in nature, they collectively fall within a hierarchy of authority that is described as follows:

  Description Governing Body
IEEE Constitution, Bylaws and Policies Govern the operation of IEEE IEEE Board of Directors
