The IFPA is committed to ensuring public safety in all information given and by access to high quality therapists through its membership to the organisation.
Aromatherapy in clinical practice requires therapists to acquire and maintain a good level of safety for both the clients and the therapist. Safety in the use of essential oils and client care is paramount and integral to all IFPA aromatherapy education programmes. Therapists are required within the membership of the federation to adhere to health and safety issues legally by statutory law, professionally, in personal behaviour adbiding by the IFPA's code of conduct and ethically adhering to the IFPA's code of the eithics in practice. The code of practice and the required level of first aid for therapists also demonstrate commitment to ensuring health and safety within the work place.
IFPA continues to provide professional clinical support to therapists via practice guidelines. These guidelines provide minimum safety in practice information but are not envisaged to be instead of continued professional development. The IFPA's competitive insurance scheme offers therapists public and product indemnity, protecting both client and therapist within a framework of accountability.
