Conférence Internationale permanente d’Instituts Universitaires de Traducteurs et Interprètes, abbreviated: “CIUTI“.



Name and legal form

Art. 1 An inter­na­tion­al non-prof­it asso­ci­a­tion is here­by found­ed under the name of: “Con­férence Inter­na­tionale Per­ma­nente d’Instituts Uni­ver­si­taires de Tra­duc­teurs et Inter­prètes” (CIUTI, Inter­na­tion­al Stand­ing Con­fer­ence of Uni­ver­si­ty Insti­tutes of Trans­la­tors and Inter­preters). This asso­ci­a­tion is gov­erned by the Bel­gian law of 23 March 2019 intro­duc­ing the Code of Com­pa­nies and Asso­ci­a­tions and con­tain­ing var­i­ous dispositions.

Registered office

Art. 2 The reg­is­tered office is locat­ed in the Brus­sels Cap­i­tal Region. The reg­is­tered office may be moved to any­where in Bel­gium by deci­sion of Man­age­ment Board.

Official languages

Art. 3 The work­ing lan­guages of the asso­ci­a­tion are Eng­lish and French. 

Disinterested aims

Art. 4 CIUTI is a not-for-prof­it asso­ci­a­tion with the fol­low­ing mission:

  • Opti­mise the qual­i­ty of train­ing; facil­i­tate the mobil­i­ty of stu­dents and instruc­tors among mem­ber institutes.
  • Ensure col­lab­o­ra­tion among its mem­bers on research and devel­op­ing new teach­ing methods.
  • Pro­mote rela­tions with nation­al and inter­na­tion­al organ­i­sa­tions, asso­ci­a­tions and com­pa­nies invest­ed in the train­ing of pro­fes­sion­als in the fields of inter­pre­ta­tion, trans­la­tion, and mul­ti­lin­gual and inter­cul­tur­al communication.
  • Pro­mote aca­d­e­m­ic train­ing char­ac­terised by an open­ness to the world, a crit­i­cal atti­tude and a fact-based approach.
  • Pro­mote sci­en­tif­ic integri­ty and an access to resources for all.



Art. 5 The asso­ci­a­tion is com­posed of full mem­bers and asso­ciate members.

Art. 6 Full mem­ber­ship may be grant­ed to any insti­tute that

  • is legal­ly con­sti­tut­ed in accor­dance with the laws and cus­toms of the coun­try in which it is established;
  • is statu­to­ri­ly attached to an insti­tu­tion of high­er edu­ca­tion or qual­i­fies as one itself;
  • has an admin­is­tra­tion and fac­ul­ty able to ensure uni­ver­si­ty-lev­el pro­fes­sion­al training;
  • accepts as reg­u­lar stu­dents only those hold­ing a degree qual­i­fy­ing them to enroll in an insti­tu­tion of high­er edu­ca­tion in the coun­try concerned;
  • guar­an­tees a lev­el that meets the require­ments for the train­ing of pro­fes­sion­als in the fields of inter­pret­ing, trans­la­tion, and mul­ti­lin­gual and inter­cul­tur­al communication.

Art. 7 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly may invite to join as asso­ciate mem­bers those asso­ci­a­tions or organ­i­sa­tions inter­est­ed in CIUTI’s activ­i­ties and pro­mo­tion of its objectives. 

Membership admission and fees

Art. 8 The admis­sion of new mem­bers will be approved by deci­sion of the Gen­er­al Assem­bly with a two-thirds major­i­ty of mem­bers present. 

Art. 9 If any mem­ber fails to meet one or more of the con­di­tions list­ed in Arti­cle 6, it will noti­fy the Pres­i­dent with­out delay and no lat­er than four weeks before the open­ing of the next Annu­al Gen­er­al Assem­bly. The Asso­ci­a­tion will decide whether mem­ber­ship is to be con­tin­ued and, if so, under what conditions.

Art. 10 Mem­ber­ship is ter­mi­nat­ed by noti­fy­ing the Pres­i­dent in writ­ing no lat­er than four weeks before the open­ing of the next Annu­al Gen­er­al Assembly.

Art. 11 Any deci­sion con­cern­ing the sus­pen­sion or expul­sion of a mem­ber, who will first be giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to state its defence, will require a three-quar­ters major­i­ty of the mem­bers present at the Gen­er­al Assem­bly, not includ­ing the mem­ber con­cerned, who abstains from vot­ing. The pro­pos­al to exclude a mem­ber should be indi­cat­ed in the con­vo­ca­tion. The mem­ber con­cerned must be heard. The exclu­sion must be decid­ed on by the Gen­er­al Assem­bly, tak­ing into account the pro­vi­sions for the quo­rum and a major­i­ty as required for statute changes.

Art. 12 A sus­pend­ed mem­ber can­not exer­cise its rights as a mem­ber until a three-quar­ters major­i­ty of the mem­bers present decide oth­er­wise. The resign­ing or expelled mem­ber has no right to the social fund and can­not claim reim­burse­ment of dues paid.

Art. 13 The finan­cial resources of the Asso­ci­a­tion derive pri­mar­i­ly from the dues and con­tri­bu­tions of the mem­ber insti­tutes. Full and asso­ciate mem­bers pay the same annu­al dues, the amount of which is deter­mined by the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. This amount may not exceed 500 euros. 

Art. 14 Any mem­ber insti­tute which has not paid its annu­al mem­ber­ship fee, includ­ing that of the cur­rent year, will not have the right to vote at the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. Non-pay­ment of dues by a mem­ber insti­tute may result in the sus­pen­sion or expul­sion of the mem­ber by the Gen­er­al Assembly.

Art. 15 The exclud­ed or resign­ing mem­ber, or whose mem­ber­ship has been annulled remains oblig­ed to pay the annu­al mem­ber­ship fee until its depar­ture from the association.

Rights and obligations of members

Art. 16 By the mere fact of their mem­ber­ship, full mem­bers of the asso­ci­a­tion agree to abide by its statutes, inter­nal rules and reg­u­la­tions, and deci­sions tak­en by the Gen­er­al Assembly. 

Art. 17 Asso­ciate mem­bers agree to abide by its statutes, inter­nal rules and reg­u­la­tions, and deci­sions tak­en by the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. They endorse the aims of the asso­ci­a­tion and may par­tic­i­pate in the Gen­er­al Assem­bly in an advi­so­ry capacity.



Art. 18 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly is com­posed of all mem­bers. Only full mem­bers that have paid their mem­ber­ship fees have the right to vote; each mem­ber has one vote. 

Each mem­ber is rep­re­sent­ed by a nat­ur­al per­son, called a del­e­gate. Only this del­e­gate shall be autho­rised to vote in the elec­tions of the Man­age­ment Board as well as for any motion put to the vote at the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. Anoth­er rep­re­sen­ta­tive of each insti­tu­tion can par­tic­i­pate in the debates but does not hold the right to vote. Each mem­ber bears the expens­es of its del­e­gates and representatives.


Art. 19 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly pos­sess­es all pow­ers nec­es­sary for real­is­ing the association’s pur­pose and defines the gen­er­al poli­cies of the asso­ci­a­tion. A deci­sion from the Gen­er­al Assem­bly is required for

  • changes to the statues;
  • the appoint­ment and removal from office of the mem­bers of the Man­age­ment Board and the deter­mi­na­tion of their remu­ner­a­tion if such remu­ner­a­tion is to be attrib­uted to them;
  • the appoint­ment and removal from office of the com­mis­sion­er and the deter­mi­na­tion of their remuneration;
  • the dis­charge to be giv­en to the mem­bers of the Man­age­ment Board and the com­mis­sion­er, as well as the intro­duc­tion of a claim by the asso­ci­a­tion against the mem­bers of Man­age­ment Board and the commissioner;
  • the approval of the annu­al accounts and the budget;
  • the dis­so­lu­tion of the association;
  • the exclu­sion of a member;
  • the trans­for­ma­tion of the inter­na­tion­al non-prof­it asso­ci­a­tion into a non-prof­it asso­ci­a­tion, into a coop­er­a­tive asso­ci­a­tion recog­nised as a social enter­prise, or into a cer­ti­fied coop­er­a­tive asso­ci­a­tion recog­nised as a social enterprise;
  • make or accept a con­tri­bu­tion of a uni­ver­sal­i­ty in the absence of a quid pro quo;
  • all oth­er instances required by the law or the statutes.

Art. 20 The Pres­i­dent will present to the Gen­er­al Assem­bly the Annu­al Report of the Man­age­ment Board. On behalf of the Man­age­ment Board, the Trea­sur­er will present to the Gen­er­al Assem­bly a detailed report on the results of the account­ing audit and a finan­cial report cov­er­ing the past finan­cial year.

Art. 21 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly will nom­i­nate two audi­tors whose term will last until its next meet­ing, where they will report their audit results. Man­age­ment Board mem­bers can­not be nom­i­nat­ed as auditors.

Art. 22 Any pro­pos­al to amend the statutes must be brought for­ward by the Man­age­ment Board or by at least one fifth of the full mem­bers of the association.

Convocation and Voting

Art. 23 The Annu­al Gen­er­al Assem­bly will be con­vened once a year by the Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al of the asso­ci­a­tion. The con­ven­ing notice will be com­mu­ni­cat­ed at least fif­teen days pri­or to the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. The agen­da will be attached to the con­ven­ing notice. Each pro­pos­al signed by at least one twen­ti­eth of mem­bers will be includ­ed in the agenda.

The Gen­er­al Assem­bly will meet on a date and at a loca­tion that is deter­mined dur­ing its pre­vi­ous meet­ing. If cir­cum­stances require, the Man­age­ment Board may change the loca­tion and date of the meet­ing, and even has the right to organ­ise the Gen­er­al Assem­bly in a dig­i­tal for­mat, in accor­dance with the rel­e­vant leg­is­la­tion. The con­ven­ing notice for a dig­i­tal Gen­er­al Assem­bly should con­tain a clear descrip­tion of the steps to be tak­en to par­tic­i­pate in the meeting.

Art. 24 The organ­is­ing mem­ber insti­tute will bear the cost of organ­is­ing the Gen­er­al Assem­bly meeting.

Art. 25 If an insti­tu­tion is unable to have a rep­re­sen­ta­tive attend the Gen­er­al Assem­bly, it must inform the Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al of this in writ­ing in due time, and can give proxy to anoth­er full mem­ber. A full mem­ber can­not hold more than two prox­ies. Prox­ies must be hand­ed over by the Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al to the Pres­i­dent at the start of the Gen­er­al Assembly.

Art. 26 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly of CIUTI is con­fi­den­tial and is held behind closed doors. The Man­age­ment Board may decide to invite per­sons exter­nal to the asso­ci­a­tion des­ig­nat­ed by name if the request has been sub­mit­ted in good time before the meeting.

Art. 27 Unless oth­er­wise pro­vid­ed in these statutes, the Gen­er­al Assem­bly can valid­ly delib­er­ate only if two thirds of the full mem­bers are present or rep­re­sent­ed by anoth­er full mem­ber. If this con­di­tion is not met, a sec­ond con­ven­ing notice will be nec­es­sary and the new meet­ing of the Gen­er­al Assem­bly will be able to delib­er­ate and decide valid­ly, regard­less of the num­ber of mem­bers present or represented.

Art. 28 The Pres­i­dent will set the agen­da for each Gen­er­al Assem­bly, which will include all items requir­ing a deci­sion from the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. The Pres­i­dent of CIUTI chairs and facil­i­tates all debates. The Gen­er­al Assem­bly begins with the ver­i­fi­ca­tion of the con­ven­ing notices, the prox­ies and the quo­rum. It then exam­ines the agen­da and votes on the adop­tion of the agenda. 

Pro­pos­als for items to be placed on the agen­da, includ­ing any attached doc­u­ments, must be brought to the atten­tion of the Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al at least two months before the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. Oth­er urgent items may be pro­posed before the vote on the adop­tion of the agen­da. The agen­da, thus mod­i­fied, will as a whole be pro­posed and approved by vote.

The first item on the agen­da shall be the exam­i­na­tion and approval of the min­utes of the pre­vi­ous Gen­er­al Assem­bly. Pro­pos­als for amend­ments to the min­utes must reach the Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al two months before the Gen­er­al Assem­bly that must approve them. The next item is that of the President’s, the Secretary-General’s, the Vice-Pres­i­dents’ and the Treasurer’s reports. Then come the approval of the accounts, and the dis­charge giv­en to the Man­age­ment Board. The des­ig­na­tion of the insti­tu­tion respon­si­ble for host­ing the next Gen­er­al Assem­bly and the date of the lat­ter are the sub­ject of a sep­a­rate item on the agen­da. No res­o­lu­tion can be put to the vote under the last item, enti­tled “Any Oth­er Business”.

Art. 29 The Pres­i­dent gives the floor to del­e­gates in order of appear­ance of the requests to speak. The Pres­i­dent of CIUTI and all the mem­bers of the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee may inter­vene at any time if the sub­ject of the dis­cus­sion requires a spe­cial clar­i­fi­ca­tion of which they are aware.

Art. 30 It is pos­si­ble to pro­ceed to a vote to end the debate. In such case, only those who are still on the list of speak­ers may still take the floor.

After the vote, a speak­er may request that a remark be explic­it­ly includ­ed in the min­utes of the meet­ing con­cern­ing the deci­sion made.

The request for a vote must be made aloud in one of CIUTI’s work­ing lan­guages. The Pres­i­dent shall ensure that the inter­pre­ta­tion of the request is clear to all del­e­gates. If two dif­fer­ent pro­pos­als are made on the same item of the agen­da, agree­ment must first be reached on which pro­pos­al shall be put to the vote first.

Art. 31 Vot­ing shall be by show of hands, by accla­ma­tion or by secret bal­lot. If the del­e­gate of a full mem­ber so requests, vot­ing shall be by secret ballot.

Art. 32 Unless oth­er­wise spec­i­fied in these statutes, deci­sions will be adopt­ed by a sim­ple major­i­ty of the full mem­bers present or represented.

The Gen­er­al Assem­bly may decide not to make a deci­sion on one or more agen­da items, inso­far as two thirds of mem­bers present or rep­re­sent­ed so decide.

Art. 33 All deci­sions will be record­ed in a reg­is­ter signed by the Pres­i­dent or by two board mem­bers and will be made read­i­ly avail­able to mem­bers by the Secretary-General.

Fol­low­ing the Gen­er­al Assem­bly, a draft of the min­utes drawn up by the Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al will be cir­cu­lat­ed to the mem­bers no lat­er than three months after the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. It will include the con­clu­sions and deci­sions made in the course of the Assem­bly as well as nom­i­na­tive interventions.

Art. 34 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly may set up com­mit­tees to deal with cer­tain issues. These com­mit­tees may include per­sons oth­er than mem­bers of the Gen­er­al Assembly.

An item on the agen­da of the Gen­er­al Assem­bly will be the report on the activ­i­ties of the var­i­ous com­mit­tees which will have reg­u­lar­ly informed the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee and the Man­age­ment Board of their work.

Art. 35 The Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al will also con­vene an Extra­or­di­nary Gen­er­al Assem­bly upon request by the Man­age­ment Board or one fifth of full members.

An Extra­or­di­nary Gen­er­al Assem­bly will be con­vened to decide on pro­posed amend­ments to the statutes, or amend­ments to the (dis­in­ter­est­ed) aims of the association. 

The Extra­or­di­nary Gen­er­al Assem­bly can only valid­ly delib­er­ate and decide on the statu­to­ry mod­i­fi­ca­tions if the pro­posed statu­to­ry mod­i­fi­ca­tions are pre­cise­ly indi­cat­ed in the con­ven­ing notice and if at least two thirds of mem­bers are present or rep­re­sent­ed at the Gen­er­al Assembly.

If the lat­ter con­di­tion is not met, a sec­ond con­ven­ing notice will be nec­es­sary and the new meet­ing will delib­er­ate and decide valid­ly, regard­less of the num­ber of mem­bers present or rep­re­sent­ed. The sec­ond meet­ing may not be held with­in fif­teen days after the first meeting.

No amend­ment to the statutes shall be accept­ed unless it has received two-thirds of the votes cast with­out tak­ing into account absten­tions in the numer­a­tor or denom­i­na­tor. How­ev­er, an amend­ment con­cern­ing the (dis­in­ter­est­ed) aims of the asso­ci­a­tion may only be adopt­ed by a four-fifths major­i­ty of the votes of the mem­bers present or rep­re­sent­ed, with­out tak­ing into account absten­tions in the numer­a­tor or denominator.

If, for rea­sons of force majeure, the spe­cial meet­ing can­not take place on the cho­sen date and at the cho­sen loca­tion, the Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al will imme­di­ate­ly noti­fy the mem­ber insti­tutes and request that they indi­cate the ear­li­est date on which they would be able and will­ing to host the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. Any pro­pos­als received will then be reviewed and vot­ed on by the offi­cers of the association.

Art. 36 The deci­sions of the Gen­er­al Assem­bly are imple­ment­ed by the Man­agemet Board.

It is the respon­si­bil­i­ty of the Man­age­ment Board to make deci­sions which can­not be post­poned until the next Gen­er­al Assem­bly, unless they are tak­en at an Extra­or­di­nary Gen­er­al Assem­bly which will be con­vened if the statutes so require.


Composition, powers and mode of operation

Art. 37 The asso­ci­a­tion is gov­erned by a Man­age­ment Board com­posed of at least six and no more than twelve mem­bers. At least one Board mem­ber must be a Bel­gian national.

Art. 38 Once elect­ed by the Gen­er­al Assem­bly, Man­age­ment Board Mem­bers are appoint­ed for a peri­od of three years. They may be re-elect­ed; how­ev­er, Man­age­ment Board mem­bers may not serve more than three con­sec­u­tive terms. 

Art. 39 A Man­age­ment Board Member’s term of office ends if they
a) die,
b) resign,
c) cease to be affil­i­at­ed with the mem­ber insti­tute to which they belonged when elect­ed, or
d) when the insti­tute with which they are affil­i­at­ed ceas­es to be a mem­ber of the association.

Art. 40 Since the mem­bers are elect­ed ad per­son­am, they do not rep­re­sent the inter­ests of their insti­tu­tions, but rather the inter­ests and the well-being of CIUTI as a whole.

Art. 41 The Man­age­ment Board has the pow­er to under­take any nec­es­sary or use­ful action to reach the association’s aims, except for those reserved by law for the Gen­er­al Assem­bly. The Man­age­ment Board reports its activ­i­ties and is account­able to the Gen­er­al Assembly. 


Art. 42 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly pri­or to the one at which elec­tions are to be held sets the elec­tion pro­ce­dure, tak­ing into account the statu­to­ry conditions.

Art. 43 In order to stand for elec­tion, each can­di­date must have obtained the agree­ment of their insti­tu­tion. This is the only pri­or condition.

Art. 44 Only those present at the Gen­er­al Assem­bly at which the elec­tions are held may be can­di­dates in the elections.

Can­di­dates put them­selves for­ward by moti­vat­ing their candidacy. 

Art. 45 Vot­ing is by secret bal­lot. In order for a vote to be valid, a min­i­mum of 6 dif­fer­ent names and a max­i­mum of 12 must be indi­cat­ed on the bal­lot paper.

Art.46 In order to be valid­ly elect­ed, a can­di­date must have received 50% of valid­ly cast votes.


Art. 47 The Man­age­ment Board will elect, for a term of three years, from among its mem­bers, an Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee com­posed of the fol­low­ing offi­cers: a Pres­i­dent, three Vice-Pres­i­dents, a Trea­sur­er and a Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al. None of these posi­tions is remu­ner­at­ed and hold­ing more than one of these posi­tions at a time is pro­hib­it­ed. The tenure of an Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee offi­cer is renewable.

Art. 48 The Man­age­ment Board will meet when­ev­er it is in the inter­est of the asso­ci­a­tion to do so. The Man­age­ment Board can valid­ly delib­er­ate only when at least half of its mem­bers are present or represented. 

Deci­sions are made by a sim­ple major­i­ty of the mem­bers in atten­dance or oth­er­wise represented.

Any Man­age­ment Board Mem­ber may be rep­re­sent­ed by anoth­er Man­age­ment Board Mem­ber. No Man­age­ment Board Mem­ber can serve as proxy for more than one oth­er Board member.

Art. 49 Any elect­ed mem­ber of the Man­age­ment Board who has not tak­en part, with­out any jus­ti­fied rea­son, in three con­sec­u­tive Man­age­ment Board meet­ings will be con­sid­ered to have resigned.

Art. 50 Min­utes approved by the Man­age­ment Board will be record­ed in a reg­is­ter and made read­i­ly avail­able to mem­bers of the association.

Art. 51 Any act that binds the asso­ci­a­tion will, unless spe­cial pow­ers are grant­ed by the Gen­er­al Assem­bly, be signed by the Pres­i­dent and one oth­er Man­age­ment Board member. 

Art. 52 Legal actions, either as plain­tiff or defen­dant, will be pur­sued at the ini­tia­tive of the Man­age­ment Board, rep­re­sent­ed by a Man­age­ment Board mem­ber appoint­ed for this purpose.


Art. 53 The finan­cial year ends on 31 March.

Art. 54 The Man­age­ment Board will be required to sub­mit the accounts of the elapsed year and a bud­get pro­pos­al for the fol­low­ing finan­cial year to the Gen­er­al Assem­bly for its approval.

Art. 55 The Trea­sur­er is respon­si­ble for the prop­er admin­is­tra­tion and use of all avail­able resources. They keep the offi­cers of the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee informed of the finan­cial sit­u­a­tion of the asso­ci­a­tion and present its accounts when­ev­er need­ed. In addi­tion, the Trea­sur­er pre­pares, on behalf of the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee, a finan­cial report for each meet­ing of the Man­age­ment Board.


Art. 56 The Gen­er­al Assem­bly, con­vened under the same rules as those for amend­ing the statutes, with two thirds of its full mem­bers present, may dis­solve the asso­ci­a­tion. Under no cir­cum­stances may this item be added to the agen­da once a meet­ing is in session.

The Gen­er­al Assem­bly can dis­solve the asso­ci­a­tion only under the same con­di­tions as those need­ed to amend the purpose(s) of the association.

If it fails to meet the two-third quo­rum of full mem­bers, the Gen­er­al Assem­bly will con­vene at least fif­teen days lat­er, at which point it can delib­er­ate on the mat­ter, irre­spec­tive of the num­ber of mem­bers present. 

The asso­ci­a­tion can be dis­solved only if four fifths of the mem­bers present vote for dissolution.

Art. 57 After the association’s assets have been liq­ui­dat­ed, the remain­der will be donat­ed to the Inter­na­tion­al Fed­er­a­tion of Trans­la­tors (FIT, Fédéra­tion inter­na­tionale des tra­duc­teurs). These remain­ing assets may be allo­cat­ed only after all lia­bil­i­ties have been settled. 

Art. 58 The liq­ui­da­tion will be car­ried out by one or more liq­uida­tors who will func­tion under a Gen­er­al Assem­bly res­o­lu­tion for­mal­is­ing the liq­ui­da­tion. Upon pro­pos­al by the Man­age­ment Board, the Gen­er­al Assem­bly will deter­mine how many liq­uida­tors are required and whom they will be.

Art. 59 Any­thing not pro­vid­ed for in these statutes, and in par­tic­u­lar the pub­li­ca­tions to be made in the Annex­es of the Moni­teur belge (Bel­gian Offi­cial Gazette), will be set­tled in accor­dance with the pro­vi­sions of the Bel­gian law of 23 March 2019 intro­duc­ing the Code of Com­pa­nies and Asso­ci­a­tions and con­tain­ing var­i­ous dispositions.
