Becoming a Member
The British Coatings Federation is the representative body for the UK’s £2 billion-a-year paint, printing ink, powder coating and wallcovering manufacturing industries. The Federation has over 100 companies in membership. Main benefits of membership include guidance on health, safety and environmental matters, an opportunity to influence UK and European legislation, access to industry statistics and to meet on matters of mutual concern within the industry. Members benefit from the support of CEPE, the European Trade Association for our industry. The majority of regulations that are coming our way are driven from the EU Commission and Parliament. Through CEPE and UK Government Departments, we are able to influence legislation so that it not only meets the wishes of the market place but also ensures that is is both practical and achievable. A separate fee is payable to CEPE which is detailed in our application papers. You should also look at the Services and Support and Publications areas of this website.
