The highest body of the federation, the EHF Congress, meets every two years, with the next Congress to take place in Glasgow in June 2018. The executive body is the EHF Executive Committee and it is responsible for decisions on key sports-political issues.
Congress elects the members of the technical commissions – Competitions, Methods and Beach Handball Commissions – whose chairs sit on the Executive Committee. It also elects the members of the various legal bodies including the Court of Handball, Court of Appeal and Court of Arbitration Council as well as the Comptrollers.
The interests of the sport’s various stakeholders including players, clubs, leagues and federations are represented through bodies including the Professional Handball Board, Nations Board and Women’s Handball Board.
The EHF Office provides the administration for all of the federation’s competitions and activities. Established in 1992 in Vienna, shortly after the formation of the EHF, the office now has a staff of more than 55 sports professionals from around 17 different European nations, working in areas that include event management, marketing, communications, IT, finances, education and development.
