This is the management board of the ESA, carrying out executive functions on behalf of the membership. The composition of the Executive Committee reflects deliberately both the breadth of European culture and also the width of sealing technology of the membership.
Separate Divisions have been established to focus on specific product areas . These Divisions initiate separate action programmes, according to their own particular requirements and priorities. It is anticipated that additional Divisions will be formed in due course, reflecting the growing membership and business interests of the Association.
In parallel, Working Groups have been established to implement action programmes which are of common interest to more than one Division across the membership.
Task Forces are formed within individual Divisions to carry out specific tasks or manage projects. Often these Task Forces operate in cooperation with other interested bodies such as Research Centres or sister Trade Organisations.
