CEEP - European Centre of Employers and Enterprises providing public services

Company Description

I. About CEEP
The European Centre of Employers and Enterprises providing Public Services since 1961
The European association representing

  • Enterprises and employers’ organizations with public participation and
  • Enterprises carrying out activities of general economic interest, whatever their legal ownership or status

One of the three General Cross Industry Social Partners recognised by the EU Commission, i.e. represents the public employers in the European Social Dialogue. CEEP, and its General Secretariat in Brussels, represents the interests of its members before the European institutions.

CEEP sends representatives and observers to a large number of committees and consultative bodies of the European institutions, and through its involvement is kept up to date with developments at European level which are of interest to its members. As a result, it is well informed at all times on the activities and plans of the European institutions, and is in a position to issue opinions and take other steps to ensure that the interests of its members are considered at an early stage.

CEEP works closely with other European industry associations. Although many of our members belong to these sector-specific umbrella organisations, CEEP provides them with an additional powerful lobbying instrument in Brussels by virtue of its role as a Social Partner and the European association representing all enterprises providing Services of General Interest.

CEEP moreover organises congresses, conferences and seminars on subjects of current interest for its members and on topics related to the development of the EU as a whole.
