Committees of Inquiry

1) The board may from time to time appoint such number of committees of inquiry as it deems fit, each consisting of at least three members, one of whom shall be appointed on account of his knowledge of the law, from among its members or from the ranks of persons who have knowledge of the law or experience in the resolution of disputes or such other knowledge or experience as, in the opinion of the board, renders them suitable for appointment as members of a committee of inquiry.

2) A committee of inquiry may exercise or perform any power or function which is granted or entrusted to it in terms of this Act.

3) The provisions of section 4(5) and (6) shall, subject to subsection (5) of this section, apply mutatis mutandis in respect of a committee of inquiry.

4) The board may, subject to the provisions of this section, alter the constitution of any committee of inquiry before the committee has commenced with an investigation contemplated in section 30(2).

5) If a vacancy occurs on a committee of inquiry after the committee has commenced with an investigation, the investigation may be proceeded with before at least two members of the committee, but if only two serving members remain, they may take any decision referred to in section 30(3), (7) or (8) only by unanimous vote.
