The term for representatives may be extended at the discretion of the represented organisation. Task force members are required to complete an annual declaration of interests.

Ordinary members are clinicians or scientists with an active interest in haemostasis. New members are recruited to keep the correct balance of scientists and clinicians on the task force.
