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

In the past, the core task of the Standards Commission was to monitor the pump-related standards of ISO and CEN. With the increasing significance of EU directives and/or regulations, it became important to tackle these political issues without giving up the work on standards. The Standards Commission actively takes part in EU Ecodesign projects for circulators, water pumps and waste water pumps and tries to prevent the introduction of ineffective measures which do not lead to energy savings. Apart from this, eyes and ears follow other directives e.g. ATEX, Machinery, PED, RED, LVD, EMC, WEEE and RoHS in order to inform the member associations of developments in due time.

SME Network Commission

Established in 1998, this Commission fosters direct communication between small and medium size European and North American pump manufacturers looking for qualified potential partners in order to solve common issues. Regular visits to manufacturing plants are organised so that members widen their experience.
