Benefiting from the opening of markets within Europe and overseas, world-wide business has experienced substantial growth. As business grows so does the demand for business information, in particular, intelligence for cross-border business activities.
In 1973, leading European credit information agencies joined forces to form the Federation of Business Information Services FEBIS (initially known as FECRO), with its registered office in Frankfurt. Today, FEBIS has developed into a sizable organisation comprising more than 60 full Members from all over the world involved in providing Business Information and Debt Collection services of National and International importance.
Supported by a combined workforce of more than 20,000 staff, FEBIS Members generate over 180 million Business Information and Consumer reports annually for over 500,000 organisations, providing these clients with invaluable business support. Aggregate sales turnover of FEBIS Members is in excess of €2.5 Billion.
As the industry association, FEBIS strives to look after common interests of its members. While monitoring new legislation like data protection laws and insolvency laws, FEBIS also oversees and the application of public sources and information.
