Increasingly, legislation on many issues which affect people involved with the construction industry is being driven by Europe.
Recognising this, the FMB became a founder member and an active voice within the European Builders Confederation, a group of national building federations representing small and medium sized building businesses among the member states of the European Union and Switzerland. The Confederation represents some 350,000 building employers.
The EBC aims to raise standards in business management and technical application throughout its European membership and will put forward the agreed collective views of any member nation to the European Commission for further action.
For members of the FMB, membership of the EBC is free and the EBC logo may be displayed alongside the FMB logo on letterheads and publicity material.
