What is the European Construction Forum (ECF)?

The ECF is a platform for cooperation on issues of common interest between independent organisations representing key players in the construction sector and participating on a voluntary basis.

What are the aims of the ECF?

The principal aim of the ECF is the establishment and recognition of a single comprehensive policy approach for the European construction sector through raising the awareness of decision makers at European level to the specific issues affecting the sector as a whole. To this end, the participating organisations strive to arrive at consensual views on issues of common interest. This should lead over time to:
  • an increase of the construction sector’s direct involvement in the preparation of all EU legislative acts, programmes and actions that have a bearing on the sector
  • a more coherent and coordinated approach by the European institutions towards the sector.
