The Belgian Brick Federation informs and advises its members.
It represents the brick industry at federal, regional and European level and is committed to the sustainable economic, social, environmental and climatic growth of the sector.

From clay to terracotta ... an age-old art turned industrial activity.

Our Belgian industry is rooted locally and has to face many challenges and adapt to an ever more stringent legislative, normative and regulatory framework.

The FBB has been given the task by its members of keeping a watchful eye on various areas in order to defend conditions that remain favourable to the development of our sector.

Its priority areas of activity are
- social and legal matters;
- energy, climate, environment and sustainable development
- technical and normative matters;
- promotion and communication.

Finally, FBB is an intermediary between manufacturers of clay building materials and construction professionals (architects, contractors, etc.). Through our publications, we make known the product innovations developed by our members and we communicate the latest information on research and standardisation.
