Tool: Governance Terms of Reference Guidance and Template

Authored on

The Traceability Governance Terms of Reference Guidance and Template is intended to be a resource for national authorities and supporting organizations to use in defining the purpose, expectations, and structure of a governance body tasked with implementing a national traceability strategy enabled by global standards. The TOR template provides a framework for establishing a formal governance structure. This structure will guide the general decision-making process and representation required to facilitate the work needed to meet the stated traceability goals and objectives. The template provides a structure and illustrative text that you can adapt and adopt to support establishment of a governance structure for traceability implementation. The template assumes that a traceability strategy is in place and a lead champion or executive sponsor has been identified to guide TOR development.
