    Goals / remit

CIRFS monitors all economic and legislative developments which affect the man-made fibres industry, including developments in international trade and the internal European market. It provides information and guidance to members on the possible effects, and prepares papers for use in contacts with the European Union and national governments.
CIRFS works closely with its members and with European authorities to promote the best possible environmental regulation in Europe.
CIRFS supports innovation in man-made fibres, through its Research Committee and through its sponsorship of the Dornbirn Man-made Fibres Congress – the world’s largest technical conference for man-made fibres and the textiles made from them.
Through its affiliate BISFA (International Bureau for the Standardisation of Man-made Fibres), it sets standards and test methods, and publishes the standard guide to man-made fibres Terminology.
The European man-made fibres industry faces global competition, and one of the main responsibilities of CIRFS is to ensure that world trade rules are followed. It takes action when necessary to promote respect for World Trade Organisation rules on dumping, subsidies and tariff and non-tariff barriers.
CIRFS maintains close relations with the European authorities, including the European Commission and the European Parliament. It represents the industry’s views to these on a permanent basis.
