Twenty years after the re-launch of RAL, its status as a registered association with its own legal identity was restored. The Executive Board of RAL has since been made up of representatives from leading economic organisations, consumers, federal and state authorities and four full members from RAL who are elected at the AGM. The board of RAL – previously the Advisory Board, today known as the Board of Trustees – reflected the balance of the business partners concerned and demonstrated the strict neutrality of RAL.
