Operation of the European Court of Auditors
In general, the Court of Auditors takes its decisions in session. It is convened by the President in accordance with the established timetable of meetings, additional meetings being organised on the initiative of the President or at the request of at least two Members.
The quorum of Members present required for deliberations to be valid is ten.
Most Court decisions are adopted by a majority of its Members.
Court sittings are not held in public. The Court may deliberate in ‘restricted’ session when, in the opinion of the President, the confidential nature of the subjects under discussion so justifies.
