On June 7, 2016, the annual meeting of Sector Group 11 (SG11) for membranes and geotextiles was held in Venice, hosted by SGS Italy.

The meeting was attended by representatives of several European Notified Bodies, CEN TC 189 and the Technical Secretariat of Commission Services.

The meeting presented an opportunity to evaluate the current harmonized standards from a technical and operational point of view, as well as deciding common approaches to the audit procedures and presenting recommendations to the Technical Committees of CEN.

The next meeting has been scheduled for next year, in anticipation of a profound revision of the harmonized standards pertaining to SG11, which is expected in the next few months following a Delegated Decision by the European Commission.

The next meeting is provisionally set for May 11 and 12, 2017 in Venice, Italy.
