System Interface Committees Chairs
The Chairs of System Interface Committees (SIC) meet regularly to ensure that the work of the seven SICs is coordinated and delivers benefit to industry.
SIC Chairs meeting happens on a quarterly basis to discuss, coordinate and resolve cross-SIC issues, agree appropriate actions in response to requests or direction from both the Technology Leadership Group (TLG) and the RSSB Board.
These meetings are also key to ensure that the work across all SICs covers the range of industry needs to optimise the management of technical interfaces and cross-system issues.
The SIC Protocol sets out a framework for the governance, operation and management of SICs and their subgroups.
