SIAPWS is the link between the international work in IAPWS and the national groups for exchange of experience in water chemistry and water treatment. The mode of operation is described in the SIAPWS statutes and in the SIAPWS vision below. During the year, the activities are run by the SIAPWS Executive Committee (SIAPWS EC). The members are elected at the annual SIAPWS meeting. The current members of the EC are listed here.
