The current version of CODATA Constitution was approved by the CODATA General Assembly held virtually in December 2020.
Adjustments made include clarification of the procedure to change the timing of the in-person General Assembly in the case of exceptional circumstances. The Nominating Committee size has been increased from 5 to up to 9 people to enable broader geographical representation and balance of expertise and gender. Timescales relating to processes preceding the CODATA General Assembly have been reviewed and aligned across the Constitution.
Where appropriate and needed, statutes and by-laws of the Constitution are completed with more detailed guidelines or implementation documents.
