What does EPSA (European Platform & Stairlift Association) Do?
EPSA was founded in 1999 as a non profit making organisation. The membership has increased over the years and the Association is now represented in 10 countries with member products distributed all over Europe.
EPSA works along with its members to ensure that products and service meet the requirements of the many European standards but more importantly the growing requirements of individuals that rely on these types of product on a daily basis.
EPSA Mission Statement:
“To provide information, advice and guidance on accessibility to authorities and organisations, with the fundamental objective of promoting easier, safe and affordable access to different levels of private, public and commercial buildings for people with impaired mobility.”
The Association consists of a Board that is responsible for the direction of EPSA. There are usually 6 members of the Boards with no more than 2 members from any one country. There are then sub groups and working groups that work on specific projects such as EU Regulation and Standards. The overall administration for the Association is run from an office in London.
