Remuneration eligibility for each CRD Director is established by the Board Remuneration and Travel Expense Policy and Schedule. The policy is derived from a remuneration philosophy that recognizes the significant commitment and expectations of each CRD Director as well as the principle of gross remuneration comparable with other organizations.
