What We Do
The British Ceramic Confederation represents the collective interests of all sectors of the UK ceramic industry. We safeguard the industry's prosperity, acting on its behalf in discussions and negotiations with government and regulators.
Members can access a wide range of professional advice, covering employment law, health and safety, energy, emissions, planning and waste management issues. A number of Sector Associations carry out specific activities, notably marketing and standards development, on behalf of their respective member companies.
BCC's 100 member companies together comprise over 90% of the UK ceramic industry's manufacturing capacity. Watch this short video for more information and for details on the governance of the confederation please see the BCC Constitution.
