Working Groups

Five specialist working groups within the Association (bollards & sign illumination, traffic signs, fixed & portable variable message signs, traffic signals & control and services) have been established with their own meetings, in order to ensure full discussion and strong external relationships for specialist interests.

These groups publish their own Guidance Notes to help specifiers understand the complexities of the European Standards and other areas of knowledge to ensure that they get the correct products for their needs.

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