The Board of Therapists is a private-law body entrusted with a public service mission. The only professional institution that brings together and federates all physiotherapists, whatever their status, their type and place of practice.
There are 16 professional Boards in France, sharing the same obligation: the general interest, the patient’s (or user’s) interest is taking precedence over the individual interest of the practitioner. Boards are the regulating authorities of regulated professions that have them.
Board’s missions are set by law. Therefore, the Board is officially in charge of ensuring the maintenance of principles of morality, of probity, of mandatory skills to practice physiotherapy, as well as respect by all its members, of the rights, duties and professional obligations, including the rules set out by the code of ethics.
