Overseen by the Technical Review Panel, three Standing Committees, namely Construction, Materials and Design are responsible for developing technical guidance.
At any one time there will be a number of Working Groups under each Committee. These will be formed from industry representatives with the appropriate knowledge to develop specific topics. After completion of the topic they will disband or maintain a watching brief.
Technical Review Panel
The TRP function is to safeguard the technical integrity and independence of The Concrete Society Ltd. The panel is to be maintained by an appointed member of Council, ideally the President delegate or a Council Officer, who would convene an ‘audit or review’ at least annually (or 6 months) on one or more aspects of the Society’s technical functions. A small number of other members may be co-opted, but not be permanent, to assist.

Construction Standing Committee
This on-line Committee consists of all members registered as ‘contractors’. Correspondence is through an emailed information sheet issue at least 3 times per year. The information covers a range of topics with an emphasis on construction techniques and processes involving concrete. Particular projects may need the setting up of a traditional working group.
