FIEC speaks for the European construction industry.
Through its 29 national member federations in 26 European countries (23 EU & EFTA and Turkey), it represents, without discrimination, construction enterprises
- of all sizes (from one person craftsmen and SMEs through to large international firms),
- from all building and civil engineering specialties,
- engaged in all kinds of working methods (whether operating as general/ main contractors or as sub-contractors).
This wide-ranging representativeness was officially recognised in a study undertaken on behalf of the European Commission so that FIEC is the "Social Partner" representing employers in the European Sectoral Social Dialogue "Construction".
