PERC’s organisation structure is defined in the PERC Statutes, which were originally adopted in 2015, and last amended in January 2020. The Statutes specify PERC’s Terms of Reference, together with details of PERC’s Governance and Structure; Meetings, Financial Matters, Trustees and Language.
PERC membership is open to relevant professional bodies and representatives from significant mineral industry sectors in European countries.
Currently PERC members include four representatives from each of the six parent organisations, together with individual co-opted representatives representing different interests and sectors of the minerals industry.
In March 2022, PERC adopted a standard procedure for assessing applications by organisations to join PERC, together with the procedures used for assessing applications to be added to the PERC list of Recognised Professional Organisations. The relevant Policy document and accompanying RPO checklist are provided in the Other Resources section of the library.
