The Association of European Rarities Committees is a co-ordinating and liaison body for the bird rarities committees of Europe and other nearby countries.

It was created in 1993 at a meeting of European rarities committees on the German island of Heligoland.

The association's aims are as follows:

  • Encourage the founding of a national rarities committee in every European country
  • Provide help for national committees when requested to do so
  • Prepare and maintain a European bird list
  • Organize meetings of delegates of the national committees at approximately two-year intervals to maintain personal contact, information exchange and co-operation
