FEI membership of National and International Representative Organisations

Amongst the benefits of FEI membership for companies operating in the UK is the opportunity to have their interests represented Nationally and Internationally in the crucial debates that will shape the environment in which industry operates in the next century.

With the increasing globalisation of Industry and Commerce and the laws, regulations and standards that this brings in its train, UK industry cannot afford to be on the sidelines. The FEI represents the interests of its members to Government and Regulatory and Standards bodies in the UK and around the world through its membership of National and International Associations.

As the representative body of the Electronics industry in the UK, the FEI has access to the public policy debate nationally, with the European community and world wide.
