SCAR is governed by its Memorandum of Association (the legal statement agreed when the organisation became a registered company) and its Articles of Association (the legal rules about how the organisation is run). These two documents form SCAR's Constitution. More detailed rules about the duties and responsibilities of SCAR's members are laid out in the Rules of Procedure. The Rules of Procedure for Subsidiary Bodies describe how SCAR's working groups are establised and governed.
