The various European federations of the dimension stone industry decided in 1950 to found a joint organization to work together on the European level. As the process of European integration has developed, the need for collective decision-making and common activities has increased. As in most fields, it is also true in the dimension stone industry that a common European standpoint is needed to harmonize the interests of the member federations and simultaneously protect the industry’s regional diversity.

This federation aims to coordinate questions of common interest, find solutions for common problems, promote dimension stone, and represent it in dealings with European institutions and political and industrial bodies, scientific institutions, and universities at the international level.
