The FIM Europe (in the past UEM, Union Europèenne de Motocyclisme) is a Continental Union (CONU), recognised by FIM, that groups 47 National Federations (FMNs) and 6 Regional Motorcycling Associations together. Like the other CONUs, FIM Europe owns the FIM sporting rights on continental championships, plus all commercial, marketing, video, etc. rights.
FIM Europe operates in conjunction with FIM also in all issues linked to the organisation of international non-sporting events held in Europe and in the general promotion of motorcycling.
The FIM Europe (in the past UEM) is a European organization acting in all matters in relation with motorcycling activities and, as such, in domains ranging from sport, tourism, leisure, environment, mobility, road safety, legislative affairs, protection and defence of the rights and interests of motorcycle users.
The FIM Europe is entitled to exercise any other power that has been entrusted to it by a decision of the Management Council or the General Assembly of the FIM which will specify in detail the terms of references and the time limit thereof. As far as motorcycle sport is concerned, the FIM Europe is the supreme and sole European authority empowered to control European motorcycling sport activities organized under its jurisdiction throughout Europe.
The official titles of European Championships, FIM Europe Cups and any other European competitions and events in all disciplines of the motorcycle sport are the exclusive property of the FIM Europe. Consequently, the FIM Europe can impose technical and economical conditions which it judges necessary for the running of events relative to these titles.
The FIM Europe is the sole owner of all television, radio, video cassettes, marketing, advertising, merchandising, promotional, licensing and any other rights for the European Championships and Cups.
