Electronic Working Arrangements (EWA)

It is widely recognized within the ECC that Electronic Working Arrangements (EWA) have a big potential to increase the efficiency of the working process, broaden participation and at the same time reduce expenses.

The ECC Working Group Regulatory Affairs (WGRA, was active from April 2003 to September 2011), supported by the Office, developed the necessary regulatory framework for the implementation of EWA.

WGRA has produced the following deliverables on EWA (formerly referred to as Electronic Working Methods (EWM)):

  • Internal ECC Report "Implementation of Electronic Working Methods (EWM) in the ECC working process" (endorsed by the 24th ECC meeting, 26-30 October 2009, Skopje, FYROM);
  • Internal ECC Report “Implementation of virtual participation Electronic Working Methods in the ECC working process” (endorsed by the 30th meeting, 6-9 December 2011, Kazan, Russian Federation).

At the request of the ECC, the Office evaluated, proposed and aid practical implementation of a GoToMeeting software platform for virtual participation in ECC meetings. The Office has developed “ECO Guidelines on the use of GoToMeeting platform”, which are now a part of a more general document “ECO Guidelines on EWA”.

ECC at its 30th meeting 6-9 December 2011, Kazan, Russian Federation, adopted 4 recommendations on the “virtual participation EWM” proposed by WGRA. Within the ECC these are assumed to include web-meetings, virtual participation in physical meetings and webinars.
