EAPT is a non-profit making association and supports the pharmacy technicians in the provision of a safe, effective and efficient pharmaceutical service for the benefit of the patient in all EAPT member countries.
The purpose and role of EAPT is to provide and compare information on the role and education of pharmacy technicians across Europe.
Following a meeting of the Committee of European Pharmacy Technicians (CEPT) in Lisbon 2010, it was agreed to move the committee forward to become an association. From this the European Association of Pharmacy Technicians (EAPT) was founded by eleven professional pharmacy technician associations within Europe.
The first EAPT board was elected at the inaugural meeting in Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom in April 2011.
