ERASM Steering Committee
ERASM work is governed by the ERASM Steering Committee, which is responsible for overall policy and strategy and meets twice per year. The Steering Committee is composed of representative from five surfactant producing companies (members of CESIO) and five detergent companies (members of A.I.S.E.) as well as representatives of both associations.
ERASM Technical Committees
Two Technical Committees (TC) report to the Steering Committee. They are responsible for the overall project management within each respective area. They identify the key environmental or human health issues and concerns and/or data gaps that may affect the application and use of surfactants (and related materials) in detergents and cleaning products.
The TCs are run by a Chair and a Vice-Chair, which alternate between CESIO and A.I.S.E. representatives. The TC Chairs become de facto members of ERASM Steering Committee during the duration of their mandate and will be asked to report on the activities of their respective committees, present new projects for approval and seek relevant budgets.
Environment Technical Committee
Human Health Technical Committee
Activities and research are managed as projects, which are each chaired by a Project Leader from the industry. The project leader is responsible for managing projects to meet both technical and financial specifications. The project groups currently active can be seen on the organigramme.
The ERASM Secretariat manages the day to day administration of the work and is based within CESIO. The Secretariat is run by the ERASM Secretary General.
