    • Recalculate rates every three years to avoid drastic changes in rates.
    • Use data that are easily obtainable from reliable sources.
    • Buffer members’ increases with escalating periods to reach any new amount gradually.
  • Produce an overview report that includes:
    • The methodology for assessment calculations
