Created in 1905, FIEC (aisbl) is the European Construction Industry Federation, representing via its 31 national Member Federations in 27 countries (24 EU & EFTA and Turkey) construction enterprises of all sizes, i.e. small and medium-sized enterprises as well as “global players”, carrying out all forms of building and civil engineering activities.

This wide-ranging representativeness was officially recognised in several studies undertaken on behalf of the European Commission, so that FIEC is the "Social Partner" representing employers in the European Sectoral Social Dialogue "Construction".
