The Federal Association of German Debt Collection Companies (BDIU) is Europe’s largest debt collection association with more than 560 member companies. Its members support the German economy by re-injecting around five billion euros per year. It monitors the sector to ensure that those working within it act professionally, conscientiously and honestly. The BDIU is connected around the world through its membership in FENCA and cooperation with the US partner association, CA International.
The five largest debt collection specialists in Bulgaria, which includes EOS Matrix, founded the Association of the Collection Agencies in Bulgaria (ACABG) in 2011. Its members follow the legal guidelines and a Code of Ethics.
The umbrella organisation, Federation of European National Collection Associations (FENCA), founded in 1993, counts debt collection associations from 22 European countries among its members. Their duty is to establish and maintain cross-country standards for professional and responsible debt collection, which FENCA achieves by negotiating with legislators on a national and European level. In addition to the German BDIU and the Bulgarian ACABG, the French debt collection association, FIGEC, has recently become a member. Their President, Nathalie Lameyre, is the Managing Director of EOS Credirec in France.
