EUROFER’s General Assembly has changed the official name of the organisation from the ‘European Confederation of Iron and Steel Industries’ to “The European Steel Association”. The name EUROFER remains.

The mission of the organisation remains unchanged. The new name simply reflects the structure of the membership of the association which is composed primarily of the steel producers themselves as well as the national steel associations. The organisations activities will remain the same in terms of cooperation amongst the national steel federations and companies in all matters contributing to the development of the European steel industry as well as representing the common interests of its members towards the European institutions and international organisations.

The logo has been adapted in accordance with the new name of the organisation:

The change comes into effect on 20th of September 2011.
