On March 3, 2021 the then Governing Council of IRIS voted unanimously to approve the IRIS by-laws which restructured the governance of IRIS, establishing the IRIS Executive Committee as the shared governance body of the Institute.
Prior to March 3, 2021, IRIS operated under the by-laws of the International Institute (predecessor of IRIS, approved 2/13/2013) and following the guidance offered in the proposal for the creation of IRIS (4/12/2015; effective 7/1/2015).
