The governing authority in WRO is the WRO Advisory Council (AC). A smaller group of AC members constitutes what is called the Board of Trustees (BOT). The reason for this organizational structure of the WRO is that from January 1st 2011 the WRO has become a legal entity, registered in Singapore. The official name of the WRO is now World Robot Olympiad Association Ltd.
Daily operations of WRO are managed by the WRO Secretary General.
