Technical Commission

Dealing with all matters technical, this Commission has played a pivotal role in Europump since its foundation. It continues to attract considerable interest and participation from pump manufacturers and has produced a wide range of industry technical publications. Current areas of interest include the impact of REACH legislation on pumps, assessing pumping systems for operational and energy efficiency, and condition monitoring to extend mean time between repair.

Marketing / PR Commission

In 2007 the activities of the Marketing and Publications/Public Relations Commissions were combined. The Commission has a very wide brief but key themes include coordinating the provision by an external consultancy of industry-relevant market data, lobbying the EU statistical organisation (Eurostat) for meaningful data on pump sector activity (e.g. PRODCOM), addressing counterfeiting of pump products in the market place and promoting the European pump industry to legislative and regulatory bodies.

Standards Commission

Established shortly after the Technical Commission, it has traditionally been involved in providing support for the preparation of technical standards relevant to pumps and assisting in the harmonisation of existing standards. With the growth of EU legislation and directives, its work now focuses primarily on developing pump-related standards to address directives such as EuP (Energy Using Products) and the New Machinery Directive.

SME Network Commission

Established in 1998, this Commission is targeted specifically at smaller/medium size pump manufacturers and provides a forum in which participants can exchange ideas, views and experiences on pump-related issues. External experts are often invited to present on specific topics of interest and regular visits to manufacturing plants are organised in order for participants to widen their experience.
