Founded in 1945, the French Syndicate of Professional Experts on Works of Art and Collections (SFEP) is the oldest of the organisations representing our profession of expert on works of art.

Over and above the existing code of professional ethics, it assures the cohesion of its members in their diverse and complementary activities.

Exclusively composed of independent professional experts whose competence is unanimously recognised, the syndicate today gathers together 129 members covering 44 specialities. Amongst them are legal experts who are registered to appear in a Court of Appeal, for the Customs Administration or Courts of the Public Domain.

The members provide their services in France and abroad to collectors and amateurs, to heirs, legatees or donors, to juridical decisions or to museums for all advice, and expertise, and all presentations of objects on sale at public auctions.

Scientifically responsible in the drafting of catalogues which make the reputation of public sales in France, the experts, contrary to the practice abroad, guarantee their expertise and descriptions which fully engage their responsibility and their credibility.

The membership of an expert in the SFEP is subject to some strict criteria of competence and experience and offers a guarantee against the regrettable deregulation of the title of expert in France.

The new laws governing the art market, the suppression of the auctioneers in the matter of voluntary sales, and their replacement by some sales companies, show clearly the dominating role of the experts, alone to ally the knowledge of objects to that of the market of their speciality.

Today, more than ever, they present themselves as privileged interlocutors available for consultations without intermediaries.
