Advisory committees

The advisory committees are composed of representatives of our members. Their task is to support the formulation of TELA’s positions and the expertise of our office. Each advisory committee has a designated contact person in our office.

Advisory Committee for Calculation Criteria Affairs and Calculation Criteria Section

The advisory committee participates in the formulation of our positions concerning actuarial issues.

The separate and independent TELA Calculation Criteria Section consists of actuaries working for our corporate members. Among other things, the Calculation Criteria Section maintains and develops the joint calculation criteria applied to pension contributions and actuarial principles by pension insurance companies within the cooperation defined by law.
