HOW TO JOIN
Membership of EPSA is open to all manufacturers and distributors of platform lifts and stair lifts in the European Community, plus, from 2011, all component supplier and installation companies. All you need do is complete a simple application form and submit it to the EPSA Secretary General. Application forms are available in 5 languages and can be downloaded from this website or requested by an e-mail message to the Secretary General.
Your application will be considered by the EPSA Board and, if successful, you will be asked to send us a copy of the Declaration of Conformity to the Machinery Directive, and Type Examination Certificate when appropriate, for all of your product range. Once received, we will issue an invoice for the subscription fee and, upon payment, you will become an EPSA member.
