LIA Technical Committees are created according to industry need. They support the technical work of the LIA.
The main work consists of:

Drafting of and input to IEC (International), CEN/CENELEC (European) and BS (British) standards proposals
Input to LightingEurope, our European Trade Association, on EU subjects such as Directives & Regulations (e.g. ERP, RoHS, LVD), lobbying, circular economy, etc.
Input to UK Government on ECA, building regs, etc.
Preparation of LIA Technical Bulletins, Information Sheets, Technical Statements & Guides.
Presentations at LIA Technical Forums.

The Technical Committees report to the LIA Technical Board which is made up of the Chair and Vice-Chair(s) of each TC plus invited external experts e.g. from Government.
The LIA Technical Board reports to LIA Council.
There are currently 5 committees that are the main discussion forums for LIA members who wish to be more active in the Association.
The LIA Technical Committees are :

Technical Committee membership is open to UK based staff of LIA Full Members who are interested in contributing to and taking an active part in the technical work of LIA, or to external experts whose input and knowledge would be beneficial to the work of the Technical Committee. For the Emergency Lighting TC you should preferably be a member of ICEL. To keep the size of Technical Committees manageable they are generally limited to one representative per member company.
Applications for Technical Committee membership should be made to the LIA technical team (Lawrence Barling and Krish Govinden) stating which committees you would like to be a member of.
The Technical Committee Chair, in consultation with the LIA Technical Managers, consider all nominations for Technical Committee membership.
