The European Relocation Association, was formed in 1998 with the aim of promoting the benefits of professionally managed relocation and mobility services to companies with globally mobile employees.
The relocation process is one of the most difficult times for an employee that involves intense changes on a professional, personal and cultural basis. The impact on both individuals and their families is profound, which is why professional support is invaluable in setting you up for a successful assignment.
Professional relocation suppliers not only save companies money, as they have a far greater ability to accurately negotiate expenses on behalf of their clients, they also provide a seamless transition for the employee from one role to the next, promoting effective and swift productivity for the company.
EuRA currently has three focuses for best practice: adherence to our code of conduct, accreditation through training and accreditation through the EuRA Global Quality Seal.
The Rules of Conduct are agreed by each member each year as they renew their membership. Members found to be in breach of these rules are subject to the disciplinary procedures outlined in Chapter Four of the Policy Document.
EuRA accredits individual relocation professionals through the MIM training programme. EuRA is a founder member and participant in the European Academy of Relocation Professionals project to externally accredit European-wide training programmes.
Through the EuRA Global Quality Seal (EGQS), the Association is able to accredit member companies independently through an ISO model external audit system. The EGQS examines the member company according to the criteria laid down in the EuRA Quality Standard, which although based on an ISO 9001 model, is more far reaching, specific to relocation service delivery and aimed at promoting the very highest quality of service from EuRA members.
For the first time in 2018, EuRA will make having Professional Indemnity Insurance a mandatory condition for all Full and Associate Members. We are currently carrying out a final consultation with members to enable the Executive Group to consider any national or other legitimate factors which may need to be considered in finalising the details of the new rule.
