Society of European Affairs Professionals

What is SEAP?

What we do
SEAP is the Society of European Affairs Professionals established in 1997. It is the recognised organisation of all EU public affairs professionals including those operating in trade associations, corporations, consultancies and other representative bodies. SEAP encourages the highest standards of professionalism for European affairs activity and promotes self-regulation of the profession.

Code of Conduct
SEAP adopted a Code of Conduct in 1997. Since then the Code has been revised and strengthened a number of times and now, through the introduction of a procedure for non-compliance, is an accountable and credible tool for the regulation of the industry. All SEAP members are bound to this code.
