Product Technical Policy and Standards Group

The Product Technical Policy and Standards Group (PTPS) covers electro-technical policies affecting products as well as the standards manufacturers must comply with before tech goods can be sold in the UK.

Currently the PTPS is focused on understanding what Brexit means for physical goods, conformity assessments and its impact on design requirements. It is campaigning to keep the UK within CE marking and membership of the European Standardization organisations. The group also lobbies on the details of specific legislation such as the Radio Equipment, Low Voltage and Electromagnetic Compatibility Directives.

The PTPS also works with the BSI and sits on numerous UK and international CEN, CENELEC, IEC, ISO and IEEE standards committees and updates members on standards in development. The PTPS engages with BEIS, other industry fora (including Digital Europe) and Market Surveillance Authorities on product compliance.

The PTPS is open to all members, but is mainly for those manufacturing physical goods.
