FIPA’s core standardisation activities are centered around the creation and maintenance of specifications. This work is managed by Technical Committees. Other work, which may or may not be of a technical nature but does not necessarily contribute to the production of specifications, is handled by Working Groups. Special Interest Groups undertake auxilliary work which is of interest to sections of FIPA membership.
Most work on standardisation between the FIPA membership occurs at regularly scheduled meetings (four times a year). Interim meetings can be arranged between TC and WG members only with the prior approval of the FIPA membership.
Communication outside of the meetings usually occurs on the email mailing lists that FIPA provides and maintains.
