Relevance condition Decisions should be made on the basis of reasons (i.e., evidence, principles, arguments) that "fair-minded" people can agree are relevant under the circumstances.
Publicity condition Decisions and their rationales should be transparent and made publicly accessible.
Revision condition There should be opportunities to revisit and revise decisions in light of further evidence or arguments, and there should be a mechanism for challenge and dispute resolution.
Enforcement condition There should be either voluntary or public regulation of the process to ensure that the other three conditions are met.
