About us

BRANCH ASSOCIATION POLYMERS (BAP) is a non-profit association of companies processing and trading with polymers founded in 1999.

At the national level, BAP is the only branch organization representing plastics convertors, companies trading with polymer raw materials and recyclates.

The Association actively monitors the changes in the Bulgarian and European legislation and cooperates with the Bulgarian institutions in drafting the legal framework affecting the plastics industry in the country by protecting the interests of the polymer industry.

We work for the positive image of the industry to consumers and institutions in order to improve the competitive advantages of the companies in the market. Key principles of our activity are circular economy, sustainability and environmental protection, consumer health and safety.

BRANCH ASSOCIATION POLYMERS is an active member of EuPC – European Plastics Converters Association and the Mediterranean Advisory Board of PlasticsEurope – The Association of Plastics Manufacturers in Europe.
