Notes from the Secretariat
Welcome to the Spring 2019 EPSMA newsletter. We’ve just had our second-
Q2 2019 Management Committee meeting
TC project progress was discussed (see below).
Manfred Schlenk reported back on his presentation to PSMA at their AGM at APEC in Anaheim. We are looking forward to closer cooperation with the PSMA, particularly on common projects such as ‘Embedded software validation in power supplies’.
Three representatives from UL laboratories attended the MC meeting to discuss service levels and costs. Lively debate resulted in a better understanding by UL of member needs and their desire for transparency in costing. UL contributed ideas for reduction in overall costs by early involvement with them. We agreed to meet again to review service levels.
