Extract from document NEA/CRPPH/EGIR(2018)1

During its 76th meeting, the CRPPH agreed to change the name of the expert group from “Expert Group on the Implications of Recommendations (EGIR)” to “Expert Group on International Recommendations (EGIR)”, to reflect that the EGIR process may be used to assess draft documents from many different international organisations. The CRPPH also agreed that the review performed by the EGIR should be submitted to its approval prior to the submission of the reviewed document to the authoring organisation. Should time constrains due to consultation period limits and/or EGIR meeting organisational issues make CRPPH review and approval of EGIR comments impractical, the CRPPH Bureau may be mandated to approve the CRPPH/EGIR comments on behalf of the CRPPH, as appropriate.
