If you represent a national dietetic association or educational organization in Europe, why not get in touch to discuss becoming a member of EFAD?

Full membership of the Federation is open to National Associations of Dietitians from any European country who admit members meeting the EFAD definition of dietitian and whose level of education meets the European Academic and Practitioner Standards for Dietetics.


Affiliated membership is open to all other relevant associations of dietitians and/or nutritionists.

Education Associate Membership is open to legally constituted educational organizations which can support the role, profession and work of dietitians

  • who share EFAD’s ethics and values
  • who are willing and able to make a positive contribution to the work of EFAD

Education Associate Membership is open to all Higher Education Institutions that are recommended by all the NDA members of EFAD in their country (where such NDAs exist) and are teaching (or working towards teaching) the European Dietetic Academic and Practitioner standards and other EFAD educational standards.


Honorary members are persons who have distinguished themselves in the service of dietetics.
