EEF provides businesses with advice, guidance and support in employment law, employee relations, health, safety, climate and environment, information and research and occupational health.

It also delivers internationally recognised training and consultancy in the UK and overseas.

EEF’s services help businesses manage compliance with their ethical and legal obligations, improve performance and gain competitive advantage.

Through offices in London and Brussels, EEF provides political representation on behalf of UK business in the engineering, manufacturing and technology-based sectors: lobbying government, MPs, regional development agencies, MEPs and European institutions.

In November 2003 the EEF rebranded itself from the 'Engineering Employers' Federation' to 'EEF The Manufacturers' Organisation'.[3]

The EEF archive [1] is curated by Warwick University's Modern Records Centre.


Membership of EEF is corporate: organisations and companies are members, not the individuals that work for them.
