Notes from the Secretariat

Welcome to the summer 2017 edition of the EPSMA newsletter although the weather is getting distinctly autumnal now.

There has been activity over the last months on standards issues with the EPSMA representing members opinions about transition of UL508 to UL61010 and the UL adoption of IEC 61204 and another new member has joined the EPSMA.

Please keep a flow of marketing information about your products, news and vacancies coming to the secretariat for placement on the website. It’s free!

Also remember we have a ’Linkedin’ forum for members to use and a data base of UL non-conformances for members to log their observations. Contact the secretariat for more details

Monthly updates are continuing to go to members as emails with links to standards information and energy efficiency developments. Hopefully this is useful, any suggestions about content are welcome.

As ever, meeting minutes and committee reports are in the members’ area of the website. Contact the secretariat if you need your password re-sending.

The EPSMA AGM is coming up on Wednesday 8th November hosted by TI in Freising, near Munch. Any members wishing to attend are welcome. Please let the secretariat know as early as possible if you wish to come.
