In order to follow up on a sustainable worldwide growth, EHEDG applies a clear policy for new Regional Section approvals based upon:
- definition of the EHEDG regional priorities
- assessment of the applicants (e.g. characteristics of the region, size of Food and machinery sectors, applicant entity, chair, management, resources etc.)
- evaluation including scoring criteria (minimum thresholds, stages, interaction with the applicant)
- final decision for acceptance of a new Regional Section by the EHEDG Executive Committee upon recommendation of Sub-Committee Regional Development.
After having successfully passed the above steps, a new Regional Section is officialized by signing a contract with EHEDG (Regional By-Laws).
EHEDG may provide initial funding for the establishment of new Regional Sections.
The local experts are highly dedicated to the mission of EHEDG and are committed to spreading and disseminating the EHEDG know-how in their countries.
