Staying up to date with legislation and standards is essential for manufacturers. Being able to participate in shaping these developments increasingly marks a competitive advantage.

The Eurovent Association not only provides you with all important information at the right time through our newsletters and activities, but also gives you the opportunity to influence standards and legislation on a national, European Union and international level within a truly democratic decision-making structure.

On a technical level, this takes place within Eurovent’s Product Groups. As a contributing member of Eurovent (Member Association, Corresponding Member, Associate Member), any representative of your organisation can participate in these activities. The number of votes a participant receives is independent from the size or turnover of its organisation.

​Manufacturers within Product Groups:

  • Actively participate in the development of European (e.g. Ecodesign) and international legislation
  • Join forces to develop ‘codes of good practice’ for the industry (known as ‘Eurovent Recommendations’), which later find their ways into standards and legislation
  • Share their expertise across borders, contributing to a true level playing field and markets with fewer barriers
  • Meet up with their colleagues from around Europe and beyond, to elaborate on developments within their markets
