EVIA (European Ventilation Industry Association) is the umbrella organization of the European ventilation industry founded in July 2010.

At the beginning of 2011, the largest European fan manufacturers met in Brussels with the aim of establishing a representative body for the European fan industry. After intensive discussion and consideration of the various possibilities, the majority of the participants were of the opinion that the appropriate framework conditions should be found within EVIA. The primary objective is to play an active role in shaping the relevant European regulations, such as the Ecodesign Directive ErP (Energy related Products). To this end, standardization activities are to be intensified in a targeted manner and political communication is to be expanded. For further information visit
