SMMT Committees

Vehicle Legislation & Environment Interest Groups

Any SMMT member can opt to become a member of an Interest Group (IG). As an IG member you will receive circulars relating to your IG(s) subject area. IGs are essentially mailing lists – they do not meet, and therefore they do not generate minutes or agendas. However, as a member of an IG you can express your views back to the Vehicle Legislation and Environment Teams.
