Technical Chamber of Greece (TCG) has the firm conviction that the Unions and Associations of Engineers around the world could be mutually benefited by their collaboration for common interests.
TCG is a really outward looking organization which fervently endeavors to promote the societal role and authority of the Engineering profession, through its membership or partnership in numerous organizations, at European or international level. In this context, TCG is represented in the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI) by its National Committee. As the Greece national partner in FEANI, TCG is the only authorized body to award the title of Euro Engineer (Eur Ing) to applicants who submit all the requested documents. In this capacity, TCG also proposes all the engineering programs which fulfill the needed requirements for inclusion in the FEANI Index. This way, TCG facilitates substantially the mobility of Greek Engineers abroad.

Since 2009 when TCG acquired membership to the European Council of Engineers Chambers (ECEC), it has a very active role in the aforementioned organization, as the General Secretary of ECEC has been hosted in TCG headquarters, in Athens, between 2010 and 2012. During the above stated period, TCG has contributed significantly to the European consultation process regarding the Revision of Public Procurements Framework, the Directive for the Recognition of Professional Qualifications (2005/36/EC) and the issuing of the Professional Card for Engineers, the Directive of Services in the internal market (2006/123/EC) e.t.c.
Finally, TCG also participates in the activities of other important international organizations whose aims focus on the developmental sustainability, technological progress or engineering education, including the World Energy Council (WEC), the European Society of Engineering Organization (SEFI) and the European Council of Applied Science and Engineering (Euro-CASE).
Furthermore, TCG, through its membership and active role in international organizations preoccupied with discipline related engineering profession challenges, such as the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the International Union of Architects (UIA), the European Council of Civil Engineers (ECCE), the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), it caters for the interests of all its members regardless of their specification and expertise.
As far as its bilateral relations are concerned, TCG has partnership with similar organizations of other countries around the world. TCG has also built a strong relationship with the Arab-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and Development. In recent years, TCG has developed cooperation with the Chinese Organization of State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs (SAFEA), in areas concerning science, technology, economy and civilization. In the framework of this cooperation, TCG has signed a Memorandum with China Association for the International Exchange of Personnel (CAIEP) which is regularly renewed.
