Guiding principles

There are a number of guiding principles which are embedded within the EuroPsy, and which have underpinned the development, and expansion of the EuroPsy to date. The prevailing principle of EuroPsy is quality assurance, to protect consumers and citizens in Europe and to protect the public against unqualified providers of services.

The standards set by EuroPsy aim to guarantee the qualification for psychological practice at an entry level to the profession as well as beyond and to respect national regulations for psychologists which are already in place.

The EuroPsy aims to facilitate mobility across Europe whilst maintaining a high quality standard, whilst working to ensure that the EuroPsy system is fair and avoids favouring or disfavouring psychologists on the basis of  national or  other differences in  educational or professional  background.
