The role of the Project Team Leader

Roles and responsibilities

For the development of each project, a project leader (the WG/PT convenor, a designated expert or, if appropriate, the secretary) shall be appointed by the technical committee or subcommittee, taking into account the project leader nomination made by the originator of the new work item proposal. It shall be ascertained that the project leader will have access to appropriate resources for carrying out the development work.


The project leader shall act in a purely international capacity, divesting him- or herself of a national point of view. The project leader should be prepared to act as consultant, when required, regarding technical matters arising at the proposal stage through to the publication stage. In the case of a project team the project leader reports to the committee concerned.
