The membership and admission procedure is laid down as follows:
- All applications shall be sent to the EFP Board.
- A reply to applicants shall be sent as soon as possible (8 to 30 days) with:
- a questionnaire to be filled in with information about the National Association or Federation who presents the candidature;
- the statutes of EFP in the official languages (English, French, German), as well as the internal regulation;
- an indication of the actual annual fee;
- a description of the admission procedure.
- The applicant country shall reply to the questionnaire and return it to the Board, together with the appropriate documents. The application form will then be examined by the Board, which shall have all the necessary information. The Board shall take one of the following decisions: “favourable”, “unfavourable”, or “further investigation needed”. To be effective, the decision will have to be ratified by the next General Assembly.
A country that has applied for membership may only present candidates to the Board and to the Commissions after it has been finally admitted by the General Assembly.
The certificate confirming that the country has been accepted as full member of EFP shall only be sent, if the member is up to date with its fees.

The extraordinary member is not allowed to candidate for president or vice-president. The extraordinary member has speaking, questioning and voting rights.
The associated member is a delegate of a country, member of the European union, which does not fulfil the conditions for regular or extraordinary member. The associated member has speaking and questioning rights.
In each country, the delegate and his substitute are elected or designated for four years by the associations or federations representing psychomotricity officially and at a national level. A re-election is allowed.
Roles of membership
For membership, a written demand must be addressed to the executive bureau. The executive bureau deliberates on the acceptance of the demand. The assembly of the members ratifies the decision. A written confirmation will be send.
The executive bureau may refuse a membership, if it is against the interests of the European forum of psychomotor activities. A protest note concerning this decision may be addressed to the assembly of the members, in the 4 weeks following the reception of the decision. The assembly of the members then statutes definitely.
Members have to respect the regulations and resolutions of the European forum of psychomotor activities and its organisms, and to defend the interests of the European forum of psychomotor activities and its members.
