What is FRE?

Flame Retardants Europe (FRE) is an association representing all flame retardants technologies and applications at the European level. Our members are leading organisations that manufacture, market or use flame retardants in Europe. We seek to enhance fire safety and the understanding of flame retardant technologies through promoting expertise and exchange. We support all flame retardant technologies based on bromine, phosphorus, nitrogen and inorganic compounds. FRE addresses common regulatory and scientific challenges related to flame retardants and fire safety.
