Working Groups & Committees

The various groups and committees are the backbone of the SIG. Various groups function differently but for the most part they usually have a chair and vice-chair to help manage group operations and represent the group, a charter which sets out the scope and responsibilities and a set of specific contribution requirements.

There are three types of groups at the SIG:

  • Working groups—responsible for developing new and enhanced Bluetooth® specifications and enhance already adopted ones. Open to Associate and Promoter members.
  • Expert groups—act as advisors to working groups while providing expertise and guidance. Open to all members
  • Study groups—develop guidance documentation to enable new usage models which may lead to development of new specifications. Open to all members.

For more comprehensive information, visit the Getting Started with SIG Groups section of the resource publications page.
