Working Groups

ARTSM has five specialist working groups established with their own meetings, which cover both technical and situational requirements in their relevant fields,  extending the reach of the scope as technology develops.  The working groups offer a collaborative, effective platform for competitors to work together for the benefit of industry as a whole. Each has strong external relationships with standards committees and other bodies for those specialist interests.

These groups publish their own Guidance Notes to help manufacturers, specifiers and procurers to understand the complexities of product use, as well as addressing the European Standards and providing an extensive breadth of knowledge and experience to ensure the correct products are provided for the required needs

Members are invited to join all or any of the working groups and participate in their meetings.
