Although the department are responsible for the oversight and enforcement of performance standards of all the Red Ensign Group (REG) members, the appointment of Directors or Deputy Directors by a REG member is a matter for the administration and government of the territory concerned.

The department are not involved in the recruiting or appointment process other than when the REG member specifically seeks the advice of the department.

On this occasion, the Isle of Man administration has not sought such advice.
