OPS Subcommittees - Organization 

Under the direction of an OPS specialty committee, OPS subcommittees serve an important function as a support or research group to the OPS specialty committee. Subcommittee work usually will involve a subject requiring in-depth analysis when an OPS specialty committee does not have the time or expertise available to conduct the analysis itself, for example, revising specifications. Prior to forming an OPS subcommittee, the OPS specialty committee must seek the approval of the OPS Standards Management Committee  to do so.
