The Voice for Counselling in Europe

What is the aim of the EAC?

The EAC aims to aid the further development of counselling as a profession in Europe and the official recognition of counselling as a profession. To do this the EAC seeks partnerships in policy development on counselling at National and European levels.

Why a National Association Status?

The establishment of National Association Status is critical to make sure the proper development of counselling training, practice and operation of professional codes of practice. Where no National Association recognised by the EAC exists, an Association/Organisation may request to be considered by the EAC as a representative body for the country.

Individuals and organisations in that country may become members of the EAC through their membership of the National Representative Organisation (individual members qualify for a discount against the current individual ordinary member standard fee); they will pay a supplemental fee to the National Association, to be transferred to the EAC. This will entitle the individual or organisation to be a member of the EAC, subject to the EAC Statutes and Operating Regulations.

What is the first step to apply for National Association Status?

An Organisation may apply for recognition by EAC if it can satisfy the basic criteria of 2.1 in the EAC Operating Regulations and satisfy the National Association conditions in clause 2.1. A-D inclusive of the EAC Operating Regulations.

  • The applying organisation must provide a clear plan for recruiting at least 25 of its members as EAC Individual Members, in any category, as defined in Clause 2.2 of the Operating Regulations.
  • The applying organisation shall normally have up to three years to satisfy the conditions in clause 2.1.3 A-K inclusive of the Operating Regulations after which it must apply for full National Association Status.

The Governing Board may, in exceptional circumstances, extend this time period but a failure to meet the new deadline will result in the formal withdrawal of National Association status.

During the qualifying period the applicant has a seat with Observer Status but no voting rights on the Governing Board

The following process is followed with papers and documentation submitted to the officers of the EAC. Please make sure that all documents as required below are sent in English:-

  • The EAC administration office receives the organisation’s application and checks if there are any documents missing.
  • The EAC administration office sends a copy of the application to each member of the Accreditation Committee set up to check the application.
  • The EAC administration office will contact the applicant if there are any other documents required or any questions raised by members of the committee.
  • The committee makes recommendations to the Governing Board for the acceptance; deferral or rejection of the applicant organisation.
  • The EAC administration office will inform the applicant of the decision.

The applicant Organisation will provide the EAC with the following papers to be considered for ratification of

National Association Status

. These must include the organisations documents as follows or a statement of work in progress (please refer to the document referring to National Association Status)

    • 1.1 Statement that it is Cross Modality
    • 1.2 Statutes of Organisation
    • 1.3 Code of Ethics of Organisation
    • 1.4 Ethics Committee Structure
    • 1.5 Complaints Procedure
    • 1.6 Training Standards document (if applicable)
    • 1.7 Accreditation Procedures (if applicable)
    • 1.8 Accreditation Committee details (if applicable)
    • 1.9 Training Courses held or recommended (if applicable)
    • 1.10 Payment of the application administration fee €400

Once the papers of the applying organisation have been submitted and accepted, the applying organisation will be considered for ratification at National Association Status. For full membership as a National Association the applicant organisation must recruit at least 25 (twenty-five) members to the EAC at any level or combination of levels.

When the Accreditation Committee decides that the applicant organisation has met the criteria of the EAC they will recommend to the Governing Board that the applying organisation be ratified as a full National Association (NA).

Membership as an NA is for a five-year period and, upon review, renewed for every further five-year periods afterwards. Membership at this level would enable the organisation to be an EAC accrediting organisation and recommend their accredited members to achieve the award of the European Certificate of Counsellor Accreditation (ECCac.).
