    Goals / Remit

    EU Focus Group is the leading Brussels-based one-stop shop consultancy where advocacy, legal, socio-economic & science reinforce one another - the only one solely specialised on chemicals. It ideally responds to the increasingly complex EU societal & political environment. This Helix Approach is a EU Focus Group-specific working model. We create concrete commercial value for our clients by shaping opportunities in the EU political agenda & by facilitating market access of products and services through regulatory advocacy.

    EU Focus Group specialises in the management of dossiers linked to chemicals in the broad sense: industrial/REACH, agro, biocides, additives, cosmetics.

    EU Focus Group operates in the whole EMEA with, for instance, experienced partners in Brussels, Berlin, London, Madrid, Rome, The Hague, Bucharest, Warsaw, Vienna, Budapest, Lisbon, Athens, Sofia, Vilnius, Zagreb.

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
