The European calcium carbonate and dolomite producers established their own representation at EU level through CCA-Europe, a founding member of the Industrial Minerals Association Europe (IMA-Europe).

CCA-Europe is a non-profit association, whose Members cooperate on scientific and legislative issues of common interest related to the mineral calcium carbonate. Key aspects are those related to the environment, economic and social conditions, notably with regard to health and safety, the improvement and standardisation of labour and occupational health conditions.
