12. Modification of the Statutes of FEPS

The statutes of FEPS may be modified at any meeting of the Council, by a two-thirds affirmative majority vote, provided at least two-thirds of the Delegates record votes. Notification of proposed changes must be submitted in writing to the Secretary General at least four months before meeting of the Council. The Secretary General shall in turn notify all member societies of such proposals, at least three months before the meeting of the Council. No change shall be made that could extend the objectives of FEPS beyond the main objectives of advancing research and education relating to the science of physiology. Any changes of the statutes are to be announced by transmission of the changed statues to the competent tax authorities.
