Liturgiam Authenticam 100-103

Non-prelates serving on mixed commissions, take note:

100. All of the principal collaborators of any “mixed” commission who are not Bishops, and to whom a stable mission is entrusted by such commissions, require the nihil obstat granted by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments before beginning their work. The nihil obstat will be granted after consideration of their academic degrees and testimonies regarding their expertise, and a letter of recommendation submitted by their own diocesan Bishop. In the preparation of the statutes mentioned above, in n. 93, the manner in which the request for the nihil obstat is to be made shall be described with greater precision.

101. All, including the experts, are to conduct their work anonymously, observing confidentiality to which all who are not Bishops are to be bound by contract.

102. It is also advantageous that the terms of office of the members, collaborators and experts be renewed periodically in a manner defined by the Statutes. On account of a need on the part of the Commissions that may become evident in the course of the work, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments may grant, upon request, a prolongation by indult of the term of office established for a particular member, collaborator or expert.

103. In the case of previously existing “mixed” Commissions, their statutes are to be revised within two years from the date that this Instruction enters into force, according to the norms of n. 93 and of the other norms prescribed by this Instruction.

Note no notes from liturgical documents, or even Scripture on these sections. This is all the inspiration of the CDWDS.
