Governance

The Engineering Equipment and Materials Users’ Association (EEMUA) is an international non-profit membership organisation that aims to improve the safety, environmental and operating performance of industrial facilities in the most cost-effective way, developing and promoting leadership in industrial asset management. EEMUA Members pursue these aims by sharing engineering experience and expertise, and by the promotion of their distinct interests as the users of engineering products.

EEMUA is a company limited by guarantee and registered in England as company number 477838. All the income and resources of EEMUA are applied solely towards the promotion of the aims of the Association.

Governance of the Association is overseen by the EEMUA Council, whose members are drawn from EEMUA’s member companies and EEMUA’s chief executive. All technical committees, forums and work groups report ultimately to the EEMUA Council.

Day-to-day oversight of EEMUA’s operations is delegated by the Council to the EEMUA Board, which provides governance and oversight of the financial and other affairs of the Association. The Board comprises non-executive Directors drawn from across industry; plus the Association’s two senior executives, being the chief executive and the financial director, who serves as the company secretary.
The Board holds regular and frequent discussions on the future of the Association, using the EEMUA Strategic Plan as a reference. The Board also plays a vital leadership role in safeguarding the success of EEMUA.

All EEMUA non-executive Board members are also Directors of the Association. EEMUA’s Directors receive their authority from the Association’s Memorandum and Articles, owe a duty of care to the Association, are accountable to the members, and have responsibilities for the interests of members, employees and creditors.
