Our governance documents regarding the aims, processes and codes of conduct of the Royal Society of Biology and our members are all publicly available.
The RSB is incorporated by a Royal Charter and further governed by the Bylaws and Regulations. In 2019 the Society celebrated 40 years of the Charter, which is agreed by Her Royal Majesty's Privy Council, as are the Bylaws.
The Royal Charter outlines the parameters within which the Society can operate and the charitable objectives it must adhere to. The Bylaws detail the structure of the organisation and the Regulations provide instruction on the day-to-day functioning of the Society. The RSB Council has the power to amend the Regulations.
Annual report and accounts
The RSB financial year runs from 1 October to 31 September. Each year we publish a report detailing all the work that has gone on during the financial year, as well as the full set of accounts which are formally approved by our membership at Annual General Meetings.
