ENPC | European Nursery Products Confederation

Governance

Statutory bodies of the ENPC form the General Assembly (joint meetings with all members of the ENPC) and the Board of Directors (composed of members of the National Associations). The General Assembly gathers once a year, within six months following the date of exercise. During this meeting, the general policy of the association is agreed and the budget is approved. The Board meets at least twice a year, and decides about the strategic direction and actions  that are necessary to take.

The technical experts working groups’ advice and interpretations, about technical standards and use of regulated substances are providing the basis for common solutions. The ENPC Secretariat is responsible for the management of the association, policy issues and maintaining contact with the European institutions. Working groups and the Secretariat prepare  and propose policy statements to be approved by the Board of Directors.
