About the Compliance Review Panel

The CRP is an independent body appointed by the ADB’s Board of Directors to carry out compliance review under the second phase of the ADB Accountability Mechanism.  CRP also monitors the implementation of remedial actions on compliance review cases approved by the Board.

The CRP consists of 3 members—a full-time Chair and two part-time members. Two CRP members are from regional countries, with one of them from a developing member country, and the third member from a nonregional country. The CRP reports directly to the Board on all activities except on two specific activities where it reports to the Board Compliance Review Committee.

The CRP is supported by a Secretariat—the Office of the Compliance Review Panel or OCRP.
