The Commission meets once a year. Its specific role is to animate the follow-up of the Inculturation Commission’s recommendations and the Recommendations of the JCSA on the Report of the Formation Review Commission, to see to the implementation of the Norms and Guidelines of Jesuit Formation in South-Asia (1998), to propose and evaluate programmes of formation in the Assistancy, to coordinate regional and national programmes of formation and circulate relevant data and information in the field of training (Incult. Report p. 177, 8.06 and 8.07.)
