The PE 100+ Association works closely with its Advisory Committee of representatives from the gas and water industries, pipe and fitting manufacturers and contractors. Their main task is to provide market guidance and feedback to the Association and ensure that industry needs are fulfilled.
Regular meetings of this committee have been held and the subjects discussed have developed from "why such an Association is useful" and "how to position such an Association" at the very first meetings to more in-depth discussions about PE 100 pipe systems and their technical and economical value. An example is the “PE decision model” which was developed as a result of a recent survey among the advisory committee members.
