The Ordinances set out the rules for the conduct of the Company’s business. 

The Court may make, vary or repeal specific Ordinances for the governance of the Company and the regulation of its business and affairs – including the approval of new Members, and the election of Freemen, Liverymen, Court Assistants and Officers of the Company. Changes to the Ordinances must be approved by the Court. They do not need to be further approved by the Privy Council, however, the Ordinances must at all times be consistent with the Royal Charter and Bye Laws
