The HSE Committee has been created to provide UEIL members with information concerning the key Health, Safety and Environmental issues related to the Lubricants Industry within Europe. In order to provide this information and to offer regular updates the Committee meets for a minimum of three meetings per year, offers an annual report at the UEIL General Assembly, contributes to UEIL newsletter, writes articles for Lube magazine and publishes information sheets on the website (see below).
Involvement in the activities of the Committee is only open to UEIL members although guests are invited to certain meetings following approval by the Chairperson and / or Board of Directors.
The Committee has formed close links with other associated trade organizations and groups both within Europe and on an international basis and, as a consequence, is seen as a key point of contact with EU regulators in Brussels. Significant issues are debated prior to the HSE Committee getting involved in aspects of the lobbying process.
The Committee also advices the UEIL Board of Directors on major issues and provide information in written form as position or review documents. These documents are then published to an open audience or to members only, depending on the content, via the UEIL Web site.
For the latest Annual Report and committee minutes please log-in to the members section.
