The BCCG is a privately-funded, non-profit-making membership network organisation. It was founded 1919 in Cologne and 1921 in Hamburg, closed in the early 1930s, and re-established in 1960 in Bonn/Cologne. HM British Ambassador to Germany is our patron.
Members of the chamber comprise about 900 professionals and companies, of which approximately 11% enjoy the special membership status “Sustaining Membership”. In addition to that, a number of members (up to the age of 40) have joined our Young BCCG programme. The network consists of about 4000 personal addressees and we also maintain contact with our members in all European British Chambers through COBCOE, the Chamber’s umbrella organisation. The chamber is the largest British Chamber in Europe.
Ten honorary BCCG Regional Committees support the BCCG and Young BCCG members in Germany and the UK.
BCCG and its large British-German entrepreneural and institutional network are first port of call for companies and professionals seeking advice in British-German business and trade. For its services to members and other interested parties, the chamber actively uses this network. The chambers’ extensive database of members as well as British firms and affiliates doing business in Germany are key for these services.
The BCCG co-operates closely with UK Trade & Investment, the British Government Organisation supporting both companies in the UK trading internationally and overseas enterprises seeking to locate in the UK. We are affiliated to the Association of British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), and represent the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) in Germany, thus having access to these organisations and their members.
