International Federation of Hardware and Housewares Association (IHA)

The IHA mission is to preserve, protect and promote:

  • The international standing of its national associations
  • The commercial prospects of their individual members
  • The consumer insterest through good trading principles and environmental concern.

Communication is Key
While each national association is only too aware of the specific business and marketing environment in which it operates, it is self-evident that international co-operation is the best way to exercise influence. Business now transcends national boundaries, and key issues such as raw materials costs, employment legislation, information technology and security can only be fully understood by sharing expertise and experience.

The IHA promotes the exchange of information and specific advantages through the following channels:

  • International Congress
  • Regional Meetings
  • Dialogue With Associates
  • Documentation and Newsletters
  • Use of the Logo
  • Educational
  • Development
  • Services
  • Council Meetings
