Board meetings

We are open and transparent. Our Board meets in public, and our policy recommendations and decisions, and the reasons for them, are publicly available.

You can see agenda and papers for upcoming meetings below, as well as agenda, papers and minutes of previous meetings. You can also search or browse our Board papers.

All Board meetings are held at our FSS offices in Aberdeen.
