Global Tape Forum objectives

The Global Tape Forum’s mission is to enhance the worldwide adhesive tape industry by providing a global forum for all member associations in which to connect to address current and future key topics.

The GTF’s objectives:

  1. Harmonise key adhesive test methods.
  2. Establish a database of environmental and regulatory trends by region.
  3. Gather top-level production data according to agreed categories.
  4. Share an open calendar of global adhesive tape educational events. Everyone should benefit from participating in each other’s regional events.
  5. Hold biennial meetings hosted by member associations on a rotating basis.
  6. Establish a small shared fund for running costs.
  7. Appoint a fixed team of volunteer delegates, plus a secretariat from each member association to serve a 3-year term.
