EEMUA was founded in 1949 by major industrial players, with a vision of working together to establish standards in areas such as equipment and materials selection and specification, and engineering plant construction, and so drive good practice wider into industry.

EEMUA membership now spans many sectors including companies that manage process and power plants, utilities, offshore platforms, storage terminals and other industrial facilities throughout the world. The Association's technical activities cover the full scope of industrial asset management as an internationally recognised source of expertise and information for the engineering industry. 

 EEMUA plays a pivotal role in ensuring members’ physical assets and user requirements are in the best shape to contribute significantly to their companies. As a result, EEMUA focusses its efforts on the most critical issues.

Our aims

EEMUA's aims meet a wide range of needs for the owners and operators of industrial assets across a range of sectors. From helping ensure a competent workforce to influencing standards and regulations abroad, the association focuses closely on maximising value for members.

Member companies own or operate many upper-tier COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) and/or SEVESO establishments. Through knowledge sharing, EEMUA helps its members meet legal compliance requirements and challenge unreasonable expectations.
