On 11 November 2014, Mr. Jiří Malach, the Director of SZU Jablonec nad Nisou, attended the joint meeting of CEOC and IFIA, held at the seat of TUV Rheinland, Cologne. The aim of the meeting was to unify the two Associations' standpoints with regard to their prospective amalgamation. As a member of CEOC, SZU holds the position of its minor members.
This has been one of the initial meetings held so far. The potential amalgamation or coexistence should take place within the next two years. CEOC was represented by Mr. Simo Hassi, the President. IFIA was represented by Mr. Roger Brockway, the General Director. More information on these two Associations can be found at www.ceoc.com and www.ifia-federation.org
