This second workshop will build towards a proven, successful approach that takes participants through the process of design to delivery of their own PWS. We offer a total package that shows delegates how to manage the essential combination of technical and non-technical. In the first workshop we explained the structured approach to design assurance. This upcoming workshop will demonstrate:

  • the critical steps needed for Ministerial approval in terms of project implementation governance
  • legal liabilities
  • political risk
  • operational performance standards
  • options for sustainable funding

    The purpose of this workshop series is to help national project teams with advancing the process for design through to delivery of their Public Warning System to achieve full compliance with Article 110 EECC by June 2022. The first one was held on the 16th of May in Brussels. The workshops are based on the experience and learning from leading Australia's equivalent ("Emergency Alert") Public Warning System and focus on the benefits of an outcomes-driven and requirements-led approach against which to evaluate the best available different available technologies. We will explain how to create value for money and a greater return on investment by delivering a single architecture that provides a common platform for multiple operational requirements.

This workshop complements the PSCE White Paper "HOW TO IMPLEMENT ARTICLE 110 OF THE ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS CODE - GETTING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME".
