Constitution and regulations

Our constitution and regulations set out the rules that govern World Physiotherapy


Our constitution was approved at the 19th general meeting, 8-9 May 2019, in Geneva, Switzerland.

The constitution sets out our membership organisational structure and operating procedures. It includes the duties and responsibilities of the executive board, member organisations, regions, subgroups, as well as the organisation of the general meeting, which is held every four years.

The constitution may only be amended or repealed by a resolution passed by at least 75% of all votes cast at a general meeting. 


Our regulations are made under clause 68 of the constitution and are binding on the organisation, its regions, member organisations, and subgroups. The regulations will be uploaded to the website later this year.
