A first step to recognition of Osteopathy across Europe?

We have all been (or a family member or a friend) to an osteopath. What very few people seem to be aware of is that there are only a handful of countries in Europe that legally recognise the profession of Osteopathy (Finland, France, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Malta, Portugal, Switzerland and the UK).
That means that although you will find highly skilled osteopaths all over Europe, in non regulated countries anyone can say they are osteopaths as no legal definition of the profession exists. It also means that in regulated countries, the definition, education and training of osteopaths is different from one country to the other, limiting professionals relocating to other European countries.

It is with that in mind that osteopaths around Europe have decided to get together and produce a set of standards for the profession.
