The Technical Secretariat (TS) is the governing body that is developing the PEF Category Rules (PEFCR), a set of specific rules that needs to be defined for the respective product category. It will meet periodically to make technical decisions, discuss the progress made, and organise hotel industry testing of the draft PEFCR. The TS is a multi-stakeholder working group, representing at least 51% of the EU hotel market.
