Being the third party organisation in the ICC

The act makes it mandatory that the ICC must have an external person from a third party organisation that is committed to the cause of women or a person familiar with the issues related to sexual harassment. Being an external member is a place of responsibility that requires commitment, knowledge of the Sexual Harassment Act and the legal procedures and sensitivity to gender issues.

It is of utmost importance that the outside member is an integral part of the quorum. The quorum will be incomplete without the presence of such member. One outside member is the minimum requirement.
