The External Relations Committee oversees the REHVA public affairs strategy and the activities to liaise with stakeholders and professional organisations in Europe and globally. As an active European Federation, REHVA has links to a considerable number of other organisations both in Europe and the rest of the world. REHVA is also receiving new requests for collaboration and links from a variety of bodies. The Board decided to establish the External Relations Committee (ERC) in order to define more clearly the principles and priorities of external relations ensuring that REHVA's resources are used in a coordinated and efficient way.
The external relation activities oversee the REHVA public affairs strategy and the activities to liaise with stakeholders and professional organizations in Europe and globally. The following three main priorities are listed here:
- EU public affairs
- Networking and cooperation with EU level professional organisations and bodies
- Cooperation with HVAC association outside Europe
