The Federation of Manufacturing Opticians (FMO) in the U.K. has put out a new brochure that outlines the benefits of membership. They include advances in diagnostic and spectacle manufacturing technology, understanding compliance with European and world standards, relevant legal and insurance advice, the noted Bad Payers' List, networking, optical training and discounted rates on several service providers. The FMO also has three focus groups for frame suppliers, lens suppliers and equipment suppliers. The group recently launched an overseas membership category.
