Global Test Method Committee meeting reports

Global Test Method Committee meeting reports

The GTF includes the Global Test Methods Committee (GTMC), the technical body which routinely meets on the same day in the same location as the GTF and includes a majority of the same delegates. Former Afera Steering Committee Member and Technical Chairman Lutz Jacob headed the GTMC Meetings for 10 years. PSTC Member and Product Development Director at Berry Specialty Tapes Kiran Malhotra is now Chairman of the GTMC. Afera TC Member and Adhesive
Engineer at Fraunhofer Institute IFAM Uwe Maurieschat is the Vice Chairman.


Of significant importance is the member associations’ pledge to develop and harmonise self-adhesive tape TMs in close collaboration, under the GTF umbrella. Once finalised, the TMs are referred to as ‘GTF-Harmonised TMs’, a quality label providing international credibility without requiring the commitments of time and financial resources to the ISO-certification process. The first 3 ISO-certification procedures alone cost the European, American and Japanese self-adhesive tape industry associations a total of €25,600 and 5 years’ time.
