At present, the Czech Footwear and Leather Association (CFLA) comprises approximately 55 companies and institutions concerned with manufacture, sale as well as research and testing of footwear, shoe materials and components in the territory of the Czech Republic.
The Czech Footwear and Leather Association was created as a voluntary group. Therefore, it defends its members' interests, secures their co-ordinated and unified course of action and acts as a main guarantor of the Czech Republic's shoe and leather industries in negotiations with authorities. At present, the Czech Footwear and Leather Association is also an information centre for businessmen in the leather industry within the project of the Czech Republic's Economic Chamber.
The Czech Footwear and Leather Association is a member of the European Confederation of the Shoe Retailers' Associations (CEDDEC). It is also a member of the International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians (UITIC).
