  • the activity of the Workgroups and Workstreams
  • the methods of keeping updated

3. A Guide to the Website

The home page of the MRASCo website has quick link access to the main areas, such as the Change Tracker, Huddle log-in and the Industry Contacts. There is also easy navigation to specific areas using the toolbar across the top of the page.

4. Pre-Panel Information

The agenda for every Panel meeting is circulated to all Code Parties signed up to our distribution list.

5. Impartiality

The Code Administrator provides an independent chair for a number of MRA Expert Groups.

We also support smaller parties and all Modifications, including asking the basic questions and playing devil’s advocate where required.
