French Community Commission (COCOF)

The French Community Commission (COCOF) takes care of French community responsibilities in the Brussels-Capital Region.
The French Community Commission (COCOF) takes care of the responsibilities of the French Community in the Brussels-Capital Region. This primarily concerns culture, education, health care and assistance to citizens.

Remit and responsibilities

The COCOF takes initiatives in the Brussels-Capital Region with regard to culture, education, well-being and health. It can form and fund institutions or take initiatives itself within the scope of community responsibilities.

The French Community of Belgium transferred a number of responsibilities to the COCOF on 1 January 1994. These include tourism, social promotion, job market retraining, sport infrastructures, management of school buildings, school transport, and public health and assistance policy. The COCOF can vote on its own legislative texts (decrees) in these matters.
