The BPP Group is a global, virtual organisation which meets on-line from time to time in order to review any complaints or feedback regarding the principles. Each meeting is chaired by one of the participants and changes each meeting. Minutes are taken by a separate person and circulated to the group after the meeting outlining the agreed action points, if any.

As a matter of policy, each signatory to the Principles automatically becomes a member of the Committee in order to ensure proper representation of all the participants.
