Working Groups are an important aspect of the EAMTC’s activities. They comprise a small number of volunteer specialists from the membership. They are established for issues of common concern or importance to our industry.
The outcomes of the working groups may result in an EAMTC Guidelines and Recommendations document or an EAMTC Position Paper being issued.
Members may log in at the Members Area of the web site to follow the progress of the working groups between General Assembly meetings. Web site links are also provided to the Guidelines and Recommendations and Position Papers.
