The structure, leadership and policies of ISS are outlined in its charter.
In accordance with ISA policy, ISS submits an Annual Report each year to the Governing Council detailing our activities, financial status and membership. An archive of these reports is below.
Prior to 2011, ISA's sections were required to submit rechartering documents each year in order to stay active as a section. In 2010, the Governing Council voted to deprecate this practice, and replaced it with a policy requiring sections to submit Annual Reports, starting in 2011. An archive of ISS rechartering documents is below.
