About Us

The European Contact Group (ECG) brings together the six largest international professional services networks in Europe: BDO, Deloitte, EY, Grant Thornton, KPMG and PwC. 

The ECG's mission is to maintain confidence in the profession and large networks in Europe and to contribute constructively in shaping European legislation in a way that safeguards the public interest.


The purpose of the ECG is to help build a sustainable business environment in Europe through:

  • • activities which strengthen public trust in the professional services networks' capabilities and their commitment to act in the public interest;

  • • supporting effective regulation and oversight of the professional services networks as an important building block of public trust, in order to enhance the value contributed by and the appreciation of the profession in Europe;

  • • contributing European perspectives to the development of international standards and promoting the use of high-quality international standards in Europe.
