CEIR Congress 2016

Despite demonstrations, strikes and bad weather in France, over 80 participants from EU Member States, Turkey, Russia and the United States met in Lyon for the CEIR Congress from 18 to 20 May 2016. The programme was very attractive: it included company visits, conferences on the current challenges our industry sector faces, and also discussions on the future of CEIR.

The Congress highlighted the key role of CEIR as the voice of European taps and valve manufacturers in defending their interests vis-à-vis the European institutions. Opening this Congress, CETIM presented the ongoing revolution and new technologies the industry, and in particular the taps and valves industry, is currently facing. The Congress was also a great opportunity for exchanging views on issues which influence the taps and valves business. We welcomed guest speakers from different backgrounds:

-        A representative of the European Commission (DG Growth) explained activities on market surveillance

-        Representatives from the French and Norwegian public authorities shared their views on the issue of materials in contact with drinking water

-        The Industrial Purchasing Manager of Solvay reported on latest trends in valve purchasing

-        Additional guest speakers shared views on the economic situation of the building sector and also the oil and gas market to complete the picture.

CEIR members presented the activities of the association on numerous topics. Focus sessions were dedicated to the water label, Machinery Directive, materials in contact with drinking water and Building Information Modelling (BIM). The CEIR dedicated working group (BIM WG) will focus not only on buildings but will also progressively extend its activities to the industrial valve sector.

Finally, the Congress offered networking opportunities at the gala dinner and social events.
