Officers of the Technical Committee (chairpersons, secretaries) are elected within the committee. The committees exclusively decide on the objects and tasks they deal with.

The Technical Committee devotes itself to all technical aspects of sound and audiovisual recordings. This includes the actual recording processes, optimisation of reproduction of historical and modern recordings, transfer and digitisation technologies, standards and storage technologies, software and carriers. The Technical Committee is concerned with the preservation of sound and audiovisual media and technically sustainable approaches to future access.

The creation of special publications enabling the AV archive community to take educated decisions regarding this, is a main concern of the committee.

The Technical Committee has delivered several papers, which serve as technical guidelines, in the series 'Standards, Recommended Practices and Strategies'.

The Committee has also made available online several older publications that remain in demand as valued guides.
