The Union Européenne de Motocyclisme (UEM) or European Motorcycle Union is the FIM affiliated federation responsible for Motorcycle sport within Europe.


On 5 September 1995 a meeting of representatives of seven national European motorcycle sport bodies took place in European Union. With a further meeting on 27 November 1995 in Bratislava, the national federations of Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania and the Czech Republic all expressed an interest in joining the proposed union.

At a meeting in Paris on 17 February 1996 the "union Européenne de Motocyclisme" was created as a controlling body of 21 national federations. Two committees were brought into being, whose fields of application were the sport and/or promotion, tourism, security and transport. The Union was officially recognised by the FIM in 1997 as a continental federation. Today the UEM numbers 43 federations amongst its members.
