The European Builders Confederation

An increasing number of national regulations are little more than national adaptations of European legislation in the energy, social, fiscal and standardization domains, usually implemented without properly assessing their impact on SMEs.

Six national associations representing construction craftsmen in several European countries therefore joined forces in 1990 to establish the EBC – European Builders Confederation – the Voice of Construction Crafts and SMEs in Europe.

Through its 20 member and partner organisations, EBC represents 2 million craft and SMEs. Via its
permanent office in Brussels, EBC works in close collaboration with the European Association of Craft, Small and Medium-
sized Entreprises (UEAPME) and the European Office of Crafts, Trades and SMEs for
Standardization (NORMAPME), organisations of which EBC is a member.
