European Centre of Employers and Enterprises providing Public Services and Services of General Interest
The European Centre of Employers and Enterprises providing Public Services and Services of General Interest (CEEP; Centre européen des employeurs et entreprises fournissant des services publics et des services d'intérêt général) is a European association representing enterprises which carry out services of general interest, whatever their ownership or status.
CEEP is one of the three general cross-industry social partners (BUSINESSEUROPE and CEEP as employers' associations and ETUC as trade union) on European level, recognized by the European Commission. It represents employers of public services and of services of general interest in the European Social Dialogue.
CEEP, and its Brussels General Secretariat, represents the interests of its members before European institutions. By means of contacts to European institutions such as the European Parliament, the Economic and Social Committee, the European Committee of the Regions and the European Commission, CEEP is consulted on draft Regulations, Directives and other pieces of legislation of interest to its members. CEEP sends representatives and observers to committees and consultative bodies of the European institutions, and so is able to keep its members up to date on the latest developments at European level which are of interest to them.
Since 27 June 2019, Rainer Plassmann is CEEP President.
