Eurovent’s Statutes and By-Laws constitute the association’s foundation. They define what we do and how we should do it. Following these documents is essential to ensure a level-playing field for our industry and to avoid conflicts of interest during any of our meetings and events.

Separation of association and certification activities

These documents also indicate a separation between the Eurovent Association and certification activities, with the latter being managed by our independent subunit Eurovent Certita Certification.

This separation is made to prevent conflict of interests while ensuring that an association membership is not a requirement for being a participant in certification programmes and vice-versa.

Democratic decision-making procedures

Eurovent’s structure rests upon democratic decision-making procedures between its members and their representatives. The number of votes is never related to organisation sizes, country sizes, or membership fee levels. No matter if SMEs or large organisations, each company receives one vote within our technical working groups. In our General Assembly or Eurovent Commission (supervisory body), all national member associations receive two votes per country.
