The eTranslation Governance space hosts the eTranslation Operational Management Board (OMB). The OMB provides a vehicle for stakeholders to handle all operational matters of the CEF building block. It aims to ensure that the European Commission leads the implementation process of the building block with the advice of the Member States and to ensure that the private sector, user organisations and standardisation bodies play a role.

This space is restricted to members of the CEF Telecom Expert Group and Language Resources Board. If you are a nominated member of one of these groups but do not currently have access, you can request it after clicking the button below.
