The ISO Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and its associated subcommittee TAGs are responsible for establishing U.S. positions on all standards, technical reports, work items, and specifications developed within ISO TC 159 - Ergonomics.

Membership in the individual TAGs is open to any organization or individual (e.g., consultant) whose work, services, or products have the potential to be materially affected by the standards produced by the TAG. To request TAG membership, contact the relevant TAG chair.
HFES also invites members to apply for appointments as U.S. experts to ISO TC 159 Working Groups. U.S. experts are expected to travel internationally to Working Group meetings once or twice per year and participate actively in the document development occurring in the Working Group. To apply for an appointment as a U.S. expert to a Working Group, contact the relevant U.S. TAG chair, and include a copy of your curriculum vitae.
