The CIPHE’s Technical Working Groups focus on the following areas:

  • Water safety

  • Controls
  • Hot and cold water services
  • Above & below ground drainage

The CIPHE’s Technical Programme is managed by the Technical Strategy Group (TSG) and a series of Technical Working Groups (TWGs). The Technical Strategy Group and Technical Working Groups maintain all the Institute’s technical initiatives and ensure technical developments are conveyed to members through publications, CPD activities and training events. The TWGs are central to the CIPHE’s research and educational aims.
