Provide expertise to policy makers

Today an increasing amount of the legislation which directly or indirectly affects the flour milling industry, emanates from the European Union (EU). The European Flour Millers' association therefore closely monitors developments in Brussels in order to be able to provide EU and national policy makers with sensible and realistic advice early on in the legislative process. This helps to ensure that any subsequent legal requirements are valid, achievable and enforceable. The association also advises its members on new legislation likely to have an impact on the EU flour milling industry.
