About the British Calcium Carbonates Federation
The British Calcium Carbonates Federation (BCCF) is the UK's only trade body representing the interests of UK producers and suppliers of chalk, limestone, marble, dolomite and precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC).
The federation was established over a 100 years ago to promote, encourage, foster and develop the calcium carbonate industry in the UK. Today the BCCF is still committed to promoting the benefits of calcium carbonate to industrial users and consumers in the many areas where it is now used.
The BCCF also provides a forum for the industry to come together and debate issues of mutual interest.
There are currently 8 key members supporting the association representing over 95% of the industry in the UK. Each member contributes to the BCCF regarding regulatory, heath & safety, environmental and technical matters relating to calcium carbonate and thus helping to enhance the recognition of the industry as a whole.
The BCCF interfaces with local authorities, government departments, and professional trade bodies and also has a voice at a European level through the European Calcium Carbonate Association (CCA) and IMA-Europe.
