Meanwhile, Profs Torpiano also stated that a meeting was held on the 8th June 2017 with the Department of Justice, and it was agreed that the declaration of good repute previously being requested to be provided by the Kamra tal-Periti is no longer required. Instead, the individual Periti applying to serve on the Board will be required to fill in a Due Diligence Form once their application is vetted, and wherein they will be required to declare, amongst other things, whether there have been any disciplinary proceedings by the Kamra tal-Periti in their regard.

Those Periti who previously served on the Board are required to re-apply.
