Outdoor Power Equipment

The Outdoor Power Equipment industry provides a wide range of machinery used for gardening, landscaping, forestry and turf maintenance. The industry offers tools for households, municipalities, landscapers and greenkeepers to maintain our green surroundings. It also covers vehicles that are engineered to handle off-road and rough terrain.

Outdoor Power Equipment members can request a seat at the OPE Council. The OPE Council meets every four months to discuss key issues that impact on the industry. In general the meeting is set up to inform attendees of AEA’s statistical results, to present reports focusing on the industry or specific segments of the professional or domestic gardening environment and to update on UK and EU legislation and standards. In addition the AEA invites official or commercial bodies to present to the council on themes that are important for members. Individual committees such as the Training and Education or Technical committees also report to the council and inform of their recent activities.

Members that supply All Terrain Vehicles, Utility Vehicles or Quadricycles can attend the meetings of the ATV, UTV & Quadbikes Manufacturing Group. The Group meets twice yearly and attendees are informed of the latest developments in standards, regulations, registration and licensing of vehicles as well as market trends.
