These groups address product-specific and broad-based technical, regulatory and safety issues.
Statistical reporting programs are a key services available to AEM manufacturer members. Over 175 companies currently report into more than 225 unique product programs; thereby, providing market information ranging from county level retail sales information in North America to shipments data on a global basis. Participating members determine the design and scope of all AEM statistical programs and AEM develops additional programs based on member requests.
AEM's technical groups ensure early recognition of emerging issues and seeks their satisfactory resolution while providing an industry forum for exchange of technical information. These groups examine, discuss and make recommendations to government and private agencies on performance standards, review regulatory demands, act as a clearinghouse for members on product-oriented standards and regulations, develop safety materials and provide input to government agencies that oversee certain types of equipment and its uses.
