The EFCI, 30 years of European services
1988 Nine national employers’ associations committed to set up a European Organisation of Contract Cleaning Associations, setting-forth the foundation of the European Cleaning and Facility Services Industry.
They aimed at:
- Being the spokesmen before the ECC authorities
- Harmonizing regulations
- Developing cooperation between their trade associations,
- Creating a community of professional interests.
1998 The EFCI officially became an international non-profit association under Belgian law (a.i.s.b.l.).
1999 The EFCI entered into a formalised Social Dialogue with its social partner, UNI-Europa.
2018 The EFCI became the European Cleaning and Facility Services Industry, and adopted a new image and strategy.
