  • Working Group – Efficacy
     This group develops EWPM policy on procedures for the assessment of efficacy of active substances and the performance of preservative formulations emerging from European Standard (CEN) committees and European Commission-led development of directives and regulations affecting biocidal and construction products.
     
  • Working Group – Risk Assessment
    This group develops EWPM policy on procedures for assessment of the safety and environmental impact of active substances and formulations for wood preservation being prepared by the European Commission with its member states on the regulation of biocidal products.
     
  • Working Group – Communication
    This group develops EWPM policy on relations and information exchange with members, European industry bodies, National bodies, the European Commission and the public.|
     
  • Working Goup - Termites
    This group develops EWPM policy on procedures for assessment of the safety and environmental impact of products and procedures, including termite barriers, for the prevention and treatment of termite infestations in buildings.
