BARTA working groups are made up of experts from our stakeholder agencies and associations. Focus of the groups and participants are directed by current workstreams, set by the BARTA Board following consultation with industry and sector leads to determine priorities and objectives. 

BARTA advice and direction will, wherever possible be evidence based or a consensus opinion by industry leads.
