About the FEA
FEA (European Aerosol Federation) is a federation of 28 national aerosol industry associations both in Europe and around the world who represent the full supply chain for aerosol development and production and is firmly established since 1959.

In the 60s, the creation of European Economic Community was the catalyst for aerosol manufacturers to work together to defend their interests at a supranational level. A ‘Commission’ within FEA was in charge of examining aerosol issues and adopting measures which later formed the basis for a European Directive related to aerosol dispensers.

In the 70s, a European information centre on aerosols (FEAC) was created in Brussels to inform aerosol manufacturers about the legislative issues within the European Community. With the enlargement of the European Union, the FEA Offices were transferred to Brussels, Belgium at the beginning of the 80s and FEA became an international association.

Today FEA acts by supporting projects and policy development together with its members and the EU Institutions, and by exchanging information in and beyond its network.

FEA provides essential insights into the key issues affecting the aerosol industry and organises outstanding networking opportunities for brand owners, fillers and suppliers to discuss the latest trends and wider business environment. This year’s networking opportunity is FEAerosol2022 held on 21st and 22nd of September 2022 at the FIL (Feira Internacional de Lisboa) in Lisbon, Portugal.
