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:
|IEEE Constitution, Bylaws and Policies||Govern the operation of IEEE||IEEE Board of Directors|
|IEEE SA Operations Manual||Govern the operation of the IEEE SA||IEEE SA Board of Governors|
|IEEE SA Standards Board Bylaws||Govern the operation of the IEEE SA Standards Board||IEEE SA Board of Governors|
|IEEE SA Standards Board Operations Manual||Govern the management of the standards development process||IEEE SA Standards Board|
