Membership is open to the national psychologist association of all European countries but there may be only one member association per country.
In countries where there is more than one national psychologist association, the Federation should endeavour to identify the most representative organization and, if appropriate, encourage the development of a national federation in order to promote co-operation among psychological associations.
Membership is determined by the General Assembly upon presentation of the applicant association's articles, statutes, and code of ethics plus details of the membership (see EFPA Statutes Article 5).
As a European federation representing the interests of psychologists in Europe, EFPA is committed to making contact with member associations of psychologists from European countries, which are not yet members of EFPA.
This is particularly the case in relation to psychologists' associations from countries in the east of Europe, with whom EFPA is concerned to make contacts, to share information and to promote collaboration.
A member of the EFPA Executive Council has responsibility for developing these links and contacts, and the EC will attempt to help to support initiatives.
