    FEICA Statutes and By-laws 

    The FEICA Constitution (Statutes) and by-laws were first published in Belgium on 26 October 2006. The latest modification was approved at the Extraordinary General Assembly in May 2021.

    In 1972, FEICA (Fédération Européenne des Industries de Colles et Adhésifs) was formally founded at the first General Assembly in Rome. Since then, FEICA has continued to grow and expand its areas of interest. Although for many years a federation of national adhesive and sealants associations, in 2007 FEICA expanded the membership structure to include direct company members (DCMs) and associate company members (ACMs). 

    In April 2020 the FEICA secretariat and office was relocated near the premises of the European Chemical Council (CEFIC) in Brussels. This has enabled FEICA to become more closely involved with the European Commission and other EU institutions and to build relationships with the chemical producer and other chemical user associations and advance the interests of the adhesive and sealant industry.

    FEICA will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary next year, in 2022.

  • Mixture Assessment Factor explained (DeTic - French).pdf

    Mixture Assessment Factor explained (DeTic - French)

    Under the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability, the European Commission plans to put a system in place that covers the combination effects of unintentional chemical mixtures. Because of the complexity linked to regulating an almost infinite number of possible combination of chemicals, the concept of a Mixture Assessment Factor (MAF) was launched, and FEICA created a leaflet detailing the MAF concept and consequences.

    In support of our National Association members, this leaflet has been made available in 8 European languages here: https://www.feica.eu/our-priorities/reach/safe-use-mixtures.
