INTAS Advisory Board

​The INTAS project consortium was supported by an Advisory Board composed of European Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs), policy makers, industry representatives and an expert in standardisation. The goal of the Advisory Board was to provide valuable feedback to the project’s developments in order to help the consortium achieve its goals, e.g. ensuring that the EU EcoDesign legislation delivers its energy efficiency targets for large industrial products and that market surveillance takes place for industrial fans and large transformers on sufficient scale. The responsibility for the INTAS project activities and outcomes rests solely on the INTAS consortium members.

Throughout the project, the Advisory Board was informed about the project plans, activities, and achievements by online communication and personal meetings.
