In addition to the board of directors, each bank has an executive committee, an audit committee and a risk management committee comprising with the directors. Board members define the specific duties of the committee.

Board can’t form any other permanent, temporary or sub- committee except the above mentioned three committees, according to the BB rules.

The BB also directed the banks that a shareholder director, a nominated director or an independent director after serving the bank for at least one year cannot be appointed in any post of that bank.
