Six Regional Committees

Every region unites members who make up its Executive Committee and is run by a Chairman and a Vice-Chairman.

The Regional Committees are responsible for representing and promoting COFREND. Among these missions, the Regional Committees organise themed Technical Seminars and, in support of the Professional Organisation Commissions, events especially to promote the NDE professions in conjunction with schools and regional institutions.
