This mission is delivered in UK and the Republic of Ireland primarily through the activities of its Officers and Executives through their representational roles in CEM.

Each aspect of the activities and resources of FASSGEM are regularly updated in the light of work being done by a number of taskforces and other groups. A risk register pertinent to FASSGEM and its activities is also maintained. This is available to read from AGM Minutes and reports from Officers and Executives (Regional Reps).
