The mechanical engineering industries

In 2011, the French mechanical engineering industry achieved total sales of approximately 109 billion Euros with 11,300 companies of more than 10 employees and a workforce over 620,000. Exporting approximately 40% of its sales, it ranks sixth in the world.

FIM "Fédération des Industries Mécaniques" (Federation of Mechanical engineering industries)

Mechanical engineering is at the heart of the industries today. It is divided into four major sectors:

The mechanical engineering industries are represented by FIM, "Fédération des Industries Mécaniques" (Federation of Mechanical engineering industry). Gathering 29 national trade associations, each focused on a type of products, market or industry, FIM defends the economic and technical interests of its member associations and companies. Acting at the same time as a spokesman, catalyst and support, FIM helps companies to produce in France and to expand on the world markets.

An industry involved very early in standardization

The mechanical engineering industries early developed an interest in the preparation of standards dealing with their products. Aware of their possible consequences on the national or international industrial development, they built an active standardization strategy, and in 1927 created a dedicated service, the "Comité de Normalisation de la Mécanique" (CNM) (mechanical engineering standardization committee), within their industrial federation.

On the basis of the five standardisation committees set up at that time by the "Comité de Normalisation de la Mécanique" (threads and screws, technical drawings, fitting, piping, machine tool elements), the work was structured and amplified, and UNM ("Union de Normalisation de la Mécanique" which succeeded CNM in 1977) includes nearly 120 standardization committees today.

Valuable assistance of the Industrial Technical Research Centers, in particular CETIM

The mechanical engineering industries remain UNM's largest financial contributor, via the contributions paid by the trade associations, the "Fédération des Industries Mécaniques" (Federation of Mechanical engineering industries) and the various Industrial Technical Research Centers (CETIM, CETIAT). UNM's tasks consist in assisting the industries in the definition of their standardizing strategy, in the implementation of this strategy in the most effective possible way at national, European and international levels, and in ensuring standardization monitoring for its partners, in order to enhance the economic development of companies.

The Industrial Technical Research Centers are collectively funded by certain branches of the mechanical engineering industries. Through collective actions, these research centers bring significant financial and technical support to standardization (especially CETIM), in financing the participation of industrial mechanical engineering experts in the UNM standardization committees. They assist the industries on technical aspects during standardization meetings, and carry out prenormative theoretical or experimental actions.

The rubber industry

In 2011 the rubber industry in France achieved total sales of approximately 9 billion Euros with approximately 250 companies and a workforce of 45,000. Exporting 65% of its sales, it takes the second rank in Europe, after Germany.

SNCP, National Association for Rubber and Polymer industry (Syndicat National des Caoutchoucs et Polymères)

SNCP SNCP is a member of the "Centre français du caoutchouc et des polymères" (French Center for rubber and polymers), a multiexpertise centre for the development of the rubber industry. This centre gathers, in addition to SNCP, a testing and research laboratory for rubbers and plastics (LRCCP) and a training centre for the rubber industries (IFOCA).

SNCP gathers all the key players in the rubber industry:

SNCP is structured around the needs related to the use and application of rubbers. It comprises 7 departments:

The rubber standardization unit

The management of the rubber standards collection was entrusted to UNM in September 2002 with the creation of a new structure: the Rubber standardization unit. This structure is financed by SNCP and its orientation is decided by the Strategic Management Committee for rubber standardization. The rubber standardizing structure required the support of a specialized organization of sufficient size: UNM.
