The Interregional Body for Family Benefits (ORINT) was created in light of the regionalization of family benefits in Belgium, as of 1 January 2019, through the cooperation agreement of 30 May 2018 between the 4 entities: the Flemish Community, the Walloon Region, the Joint Community Commission (Brussels) and the German-speaking Community.
ORINT has taken the form of a NPO (non-profit organisation)
|Since 1 January 2022, on the basis of a new cooperation agreement between the Walloon Region, the Joint Community Commission and the German-speaking Community, ORINT now only represents Wallonia, the German-speaking Community and the Brussels-Capital Region (it no longer represents Flanders). New statutes have been published.|
