Working Groups

Working Groups facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience. They bring together ESTA member experts from cash management companies to discuss the latest developments in their specific areas of interest.

ESTA has three Working Groups which report to the Board. Meetings are usually held 2-3 times a year or as required by the political agenda.

The current Working Groups are:

  • Security & Risk Management: Working to identify current and emerging risks, and helping to evaluate potential solutions to assist with the management of those risks, for the mutual benefit of our members, their employees and their customers. The Group is also finalizing guidelines on preventing attacks using explosives and will shortly tackle ATM.
  • Cash Group: The ESTA Cash Group is concerned with the continued use of cash as an efficient and widely accepted payment instrument. The Group is the main point of contact for ESTA with Central Banks and the EU Commission on the efficient handling and processing of cash, while the Group continues to monitor, interact, with and respond to the activities of the EPC and the payment card lobby in the area of cash substitution.
  • Communications

Should you have any questions regarding the working groups, please contact Thierry Lebeaux, ESTA Secretary General.
