Technical committees

A diverse range of expertise is needed when it comes to establishing guidelines and standards - that's where our technical committees come into play.

Technical committees generally comprise individuals from different organizations and fields of expertise, who combine their knowledge to establish guidelines and industry standards, and to solve issues facing a particular sector. The Society is represented on a number of technical committees.
