Senior Scientist John Tibballs participated in ISO Workshop for Chairs and Convenors “Effective ISO Meetings”. Tibballs is convenor of the working group WG 3 “Digitizing devices” of subcommittee SC 9 “CAD/CAM systems” under Technical Committee ISO TC 106 “Dentistry”.

Tibballs noted that the workshop gave clear and highly useful insight into the tools that the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) makes available for those who volunteer as convenors in standardisation activities. The take-home message is that convenors own their meetings and have many tools and techniques at their disposal.

Tibballs will be bringing this knowledge to NIOM’s other three ISO convenors and experts in a short series of seminars.
