AMDEA assist our members by providing a clear path through increasingly complex technical laws and standards. This includes preparing submissions to government on draft national and EC legislation and representation on the bodies responsible for the creation and interpretation of standards such as the British Standards Institute (BSI) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). By actively participating in this process AMDEA enables members to devote more staff time to product development, sales and customer support.
AMDEA staff are not only members of the BSI and as such participate in international standards gatherings. We also organise and chair meetings of the international standards bodies’ committees and working parties.
The significance of AMDEA’s major role in the development of safety, performance and environmental standards has been recognised in the award of a BSI Industry Leadership Award. In addition, two AMDEA staff members have won awards from the IEC for their work.
