Since 2007 the EWG-DSS has been managed by a Coordination Board. One of the aims of this coordination board is to better promote joint-work among the group members and to encourage more participation of the whole group in DSS related projects and events.

In the period of June 2007 to January 2011 the EWG-DSS Coordination Board was composed by 3 founding members of the group: Pascale Zaraté, Fatima Dargam and Rita Ribeiro.

From 2011 to 2013, the EWG-DSS Coordination Board doubled in number of members. Besides the old coordinators, the EWG-DSS counted with the assistance of 3 new Board Members (Jorge Hernández; Boris Delibasic and Shaofeng Liu) to better administrate the activities of the group, as well as to bring new ideas to it.

Since May 2015, the EWG-DSS Coordination Board has changed its structured in order to incorporate, apart from the Coordination Board (CB), an Advisory Board (AB), which will invite senior members of the EWG-DSS group to take part. The new group structure also plans to distinguish two different teams, among the EWG-DSS Members who collaborates with EWG-DSS joint–Editions. Currently, the EWG-DSS Coordination Board is composed of 7 members:
