EDRA/GHIN is governed by our Board composed of retail CEOs including a President elected by the General Assembly. The Board has the power to set future priorities, adopt pro-active plans and final positions. They prepare and file the annual budget and accounts for acceptance by the General Assembly. The EDRA Board meets three times a year.
The General Assembly consists of delegates appointed by members at an ordinary meeting held annually. It is made up of national associations (grouped by region) and company representatives.
PRODUCT COMPLIANCE COMMITTEE
EDRA's Product Compliance Committee brings together experts in regulatory affairs and quality assurance to analyse EU policy developments of relevance to the sector, and develop policy positions on behalf of the sector.
NATIONAL ASSOCIATIONS AND DIRECT MEMBER COMPANIES
The national associations and direct member companies play a central role in EDRA/GHIN. They are organised at a country level and their members are companies of all sizes. Being well-connected and active locally, they feed valuable insights up to EDRA/GHIN and at the same time, contribute to the advocacy strategy and support their members for the effective implementation of European policy and legislation at national level.
