We are the voice of UK manufacturing and engineering and a leading provider of business support. We want manufacturing industry, and your business, to be able to thrive, innovate and compete both locally and on a global scale.

We promote and support enterprise and innovation in the UK while making sure businesses remain compliant, future-focused and competitive.


    Specific activities covered by the Register

EEF works with the EU Parliament, Commission and Council to create an EU that is business-focused and effective. We want to see a reformed EU – one that is more dynamic and focused on growing its manufacturing base.

As part of our engagement we hold meetings with EU Commissioners, with MEPs, the Commission and the UK government to drive reform from the heart of Europe.

Key focuses:
- Employment and Social policy, e.g. Posting of Workers Implementation Directive
- Climate, Energy and Environment policy, e.g. EU Emissions Trading System reform
- Health & Safety policy, e.g. Review of EU Chemicals legislation
- Industrial policy, e.g. Industrial Policy Communication 2014
- Innovation policy

EEF holds a number of events and receptions in Brussels focused on engaging with the European Parliament, Commission and Council on key legislative and strategic policies. Including a Summer Reception for UK MEPs in Brussels, Roundtables in the European Parliament as well as delegations of EEF member companies to the EU Commission.
