10. An application for recognition of a resource association is made in the form of a written document addressed to the Commission and identifying the group of resources attached to a public institution it wishes to represent; the application must be sent together with duly dated membership forms. On receipt of the application, the Commission sends a copy to the Minister and to the institution concerned along with any information it considers appropriate.
The application must be authorized by a resolution of the association and be signed by representatives specially mandated for that purpose.
Within 20 days after receiving a copy of the application, the Minister sends to the Commission and the association a list of the names and contact information of all resources attached to the public institution named in the application.
The Commission may, by any means it considers appropriate, make a copy of the application available to the public for consultation.
