During the 10th European Craniofacial Congress in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2015, the European Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association (ECPCA) was founded. This association will consist of all national associations in Europe.

The ECPCA will promote and support the management of cleft lip and palate deformities, and related craniofacial anomalies in Europe by organizing a multi-disciplinary European Congress once every four years for dissemination of experience and knowledge in this field.
