EWMA regularly defines new focus topics which result in the establishment of expert working committees with responsibility for developing a specific project. This may be the development of a consensus document.
For each committee a project chair/document editor is appointed. He or she will be responsible for reporting to the EWMA Executive and EWMA Council, on the progress of the project.
The working committee is dissolved after the finalisation of the project, but the chair/editor and members of the committee may stay involved in communication activities following the end of the project.
