International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

Working Group ( WG )

A Working Group (WG) is established by a Technical Committee or a Subcommittee, to undertake a specific short-term task within a target date and should normally be disbanded by its parent body when this is completed. It works within clearly defined policy guidelines from its parent body. Such formally constituted Working Groups are distinguished from ad hoc groups of members of the parent body which may be established informally to undertake preparatory tasks, generally in connection with meetings of the parent body.

A WG is restricted to individual experts appointed by the parent body or by CENELEC national members, to serve in a personal capacity.
