ISO/TMBG refers to the groups that report to the ISO Technical Management Board (TMB). The TMB is the governance body responsible for the general management of the technical committee structure within ISO. As stated in clause 9.4 of the ISO Statutes, “The Technical Management Board may establish ad hoc technical and strategic advisory groups as deemed necessary to accomplish its responsibilities.” These groups are established and dissolved via TMB Resolutions. They report to the TMB at regular intervals and the TMB has oversight of their membership and activities. Refer to the TMB Rules of Procedure, Clause 1, for the full terms of reference of the TMB.
