About us

Created in 2001 at the initiative of 15 major European independent thermoplastic compounds and masterbatch producers, EuMBC is a sector group of EuPC and is particularly active in all the fields related to the plastic industry (REACH, Food Contact, New Technologies).

 

EuMBC compounders and masterbatchers provide effective solutions to the plastic converters in a safe way. Enhancing the properties of the original raw materials and proposing a wide range of colors and solutions, EuMBC members are present in all the market (Packaging, Building & Construction, Food Packaging, Health Care, Automotive, Electrical & Electronic, to name but a few).

 

EuMBC helps the compounders & masterbatchers all over Europe finding solutions to the constraints of the new regulations.

 

EuMBC is active in PEST (Plastic Exposure Scenario Team) a recognized organization grouping Raw Material Producers, Compounders and Masterbatchers and Converters, aiming at defining practical standards and generic exposure scenarios in compliance with REACH requirements.

 

EuMBC is also active in FREP (Food contact Regulatory Experts Panel) another recognized organization within EuPC, aiming at defining details about real compositional requirements in guidelines but also working with other food contact actors on migration/exposure tools for the plastic industry in order to achieve compliance with the regulations.

 

EuMBC members meet twice a year to discuss common issues affecting the compounding and masterbatch Industry as well as to define position statements and developing strategies to influence the European regulations.

                  

                                                                              

How we work

 

EuMBC's overall objective is to defend and promote the interests of the European thermoplastic independent compounders and masterbatches through a number of activities.

 

EuMBC General Assemblies take place twice a year to discuss and to advance on its objectives. The EXCOM (Executive Committee) meets also twice a year. In the meantime our members receive continious information and communication on the progress of EuMBC activities.

 

Objectives:

 

  • Defining and communicating EuMBC's position on European regulations and policies

  • Influencing the law-making process on legislation affecting its activity

  • Maintaining and improving relationships with the European institutions, other professional bodies and non-governmental organisations

  • Carrying out business surveys to enable members to compare their companies' performance with the European trends
