CAM providers share the basic right to work in all European countries under Directive 2004/36/EC. However, because of the country specific nature of CAM regulation most professionals cannot exercise this right.
As a consequence they also do not have the same cross-border rights to practice or trade as other professionals
Professional development, access by the public and the contribution of CAM to the health of citizens is, therefore, seriously compromised.
EFCAM’s first objective is to secure the right to practice on a common basis across Europe.
