The effective functioning of the institution is reflected in:
The AIReF is headed by its president, who represents the Institution. In the exercise of the functions attributed by Article 25 of Organic Law 6/2013, the President dictates Resolutions, which are published on the website to ensure maximum dissemination.
In the exercise of his functions, the President of the AIReF is assisted by the Steering Committee, composed of the Division Directors and, where appropriate, nationally and internationally recognized experts. Each session of the Steering Committee is recorded in the minutes by the Director of the Legal-Institutional Division, which are published on the website to ensure maximum dissemination.
The principle of ‘comply or explain’ is the main tool that the AIReF has to carry out its mandate. This principle establishes that the administrations are obligated to follow the recommendations of the AIReF, or explain the reasons otherwise. Through its implementation, the recommendations made by the AIReF should lead to a constructive and transparent dialogue between this institution and the relevant adminsitrations.
