Working Groups

To safeguard the interests of the industry on topics of major concern which require immediate action by experts of the industry, working groups, strictly confined to a major pressing topic, are set up.

Experts from the industry, participating in these working groups, do act for the benefit of the entire industry by preparing comments to state the common opinion of the industry. These comments help members to deal with authorities of all sorts and are submitted by EWIMA to the various legislative bodies in the European Union or National Governments.

Working groups can further resolve on any other appropriate action necessary, like initiating independent studies or cooperation with other industrial associations. Once the matter has been settled or cannot be dealt with in consent, the working group is disbanded.
