About EPSA

EPSA is a non profit making organisation that was founded in London in 1999, initially by 24 European companies. There has been a healthy growth in membership with EPSA represented in 11 countries and products distributed throughout Europe.

With the average age of the world population increasing, and governments more sensitive to the problems of elderly people and those with impaired mobility, there has been a much increased demand for products that allow improved access.

The growing need for these products meant that it was important to harmonise European regulations, overcoming the confusion caused by the differing laws in each country.

European manufacturers recognise the needs of people with impaired mobility, as well as knowing that planners and architects need information and assistance.  As such, EPSA and our members work to match the requirements of everyday users, and building design, with current regulations.
