Fédération internationale du béton

The International Federation for Structural Concrete

The fib (Fédération internationale du béton / International Federation for Structural Concrete), formed by 43 national member groups and approximately 1,000 individual or corporate members, is a not-for-profit association committed to advancing the technical, economic, aesthetic and environmental performance of concrete structures worldwide.

 New commission, task group and working party structure effective as of 1 January 2015

The year 2015 is an important year for the fib, as it is the first year we will operate under the new structure of our commissions, task groups and working parties, as approved by the fib Technical Council in Mumbai in February 2014.  More details on the restructuring can be found in the December 2014 issue of fib-news.  

The terms of reference for each commission can be found on our Commissions and task groups page.  

New fib Presidium for the 2015-2016 term

In February 2014, the fib General Assembly elected Harald Müller (Germany) as fib President and Hugo Corres Peiretti (Spain) as fib Deputy President for a two-year term beginning on 1 January 2015.  We would like to congratulate them on their election and wish them success as they carry out their mandates in the fib's leadership.  We would also like to thank Gordon Clark (UK) for his dedication as the fib President over the past two years. Names of all the presidium members for the 2015-2016 term can be found on our Presidium page.
