The Infrastructure Company Classification Standard or TICCS® is an industry standard defining taxonomies used for the classification of infrastructure companies and investments.
The 2019 Consultation and Review results are here.
Structure of the TICCS® Bodies
The TICCS Review Committee is composed of fifteen to twenty members, including one Chairman and one Secretary, that represent different aspects of the infrastructure investment ecosystem. It aims to include an equal number of asset owners (pension plans, insurers, etc.) and asset managers or commercial banks as well as other standard setting bodies, regulators and academics.
TICCS Review Committee members are formally invited by the Management Committee either at the invitation of the members or to replace members who have left. The Review Committee includes a Chair and a Secretary who are tacitly re-appointed each year unless they resign or a new appointment is required.
Role of the Chairman: The Chairman of the Review Committee organizes and conveys the meetings and discussions of the committee so that the consultation responses can be discussed, and any recommendations made in a timely manner.
Role of the Secretary: The Secretary of the Review Committee ensures that the committee’s deliberations are properly recorded and favourable or unfavourable votes counted. The minutes will document the date of the meeting, attendees, a summary of the topics discussed as well as the recommendations made. The Secretary ensures that a quorum of seven is present when the Committee meets.
The positions taken by the members of the Review Committee are not binding with respect to EDHECinfra, EDHEC Business School, or to their own institution. Participation on the Review Committee takes place without any remuneration or compensation and members’ expenses are not reimbursed.
