The European Federation of Clean Air and Environmental Protection Associations (EFCA) was established in November 1996.  

Founding members have been National Associations from France (APPA), Germany (KRdL-VDI/DIN), Italy (CSIA/ATI), The Netherlands (CLAN), United Kingdom (NSCA).

The foundation of EFCA has been prepared since 1989 during the 8th World Clean Air Congress of IUAPPA in The Hague. After a co-operation of the present EFCA-members from 1992 in The European Symposium on Environmental Protection (TESEP) an organization with a wider scope has resulted.
