About

FEPPD in a nutshell

The success story of the FEPPD already began more than 50 years ago, when in 1953 the organisation was founded as FIPD - Fédération Internationale de la Prothèse Dentaire. In 1974 the organisation changed its name to FIPPD and in 1983 to FEPPD (Fédération Européenne des Patrons Prothésistes Dentaires).

Today the FEPPD is the only pan-European organisation able to represent the 40,000 dental laboratories and 210,000 dental technicians on European level.

Only recently - due to its internationalisation – the FEPPD changed its name again to Fédération Européenne et Internationale des Patrons Prothésistes Dentaires (European and International Federation of Dental Laboratory Owners), which remains until today its official name. In 2003 the FEPPD celebrated its 50th anniversary.

The national federations (FEPPD’s members) are the recognised negotiators to the competent authorities in their own countries on a professional, social and governmental level. The official languages of the federation are English, German and French.

Mission

With the exclusion of all aims of profit-making,
the aims and objectives of the Federation are as follows:
  • To represent, promote and participate with other organisation in areas that may affect the professional and commercial interests of the independent (self-employed) dental technicians and dental laboratory owners on European and International levels
  • To protect and respect the national characteristics of the vocational practice, if these have a legal base in the respective country of the member
  • To maintain and develop relations between associations representing those working in dental laboratories, dental surgeries and the dental trade in the spirit of collaboration and mutual understanding
  • To represent out organisation with International and European organisations and National Governments and organisations.
  • To develop the training and education of Laboratory owners, independent Dental Technicians (self-employed), and dental technicians employed by dental laboratories.

 

FEPPD informs its members of:
  • the dental devices market within EU and the occurring global changes
  • the implementation of the new medical devices directive
  • the harmonization of EU-legislation
  • the funding opportunities within EU
Currently FEPPD focuses on:
  • the transparency and safety for the patients by providing them with the information about their rights
  • increasing the market awareness about dangerous materials in dental alloys (like beryllium, nickel and polymers)
  • correct understanding and implementation of directives on custom made medical devices: the following up and lobbying after the revision of the MDD 93/42
  • higher standard in professional vocational training for FEPPD’s members on the European level

Due to its close relation to the UEAPME and the NORMAPME (two organisations representing small and medium enterprises in the whole of Europe), the FEPPD also got the opportunity to represent with its expertise on the European Health Care level
