Bit of history...
It began as a diner in a restaurant in Driebergen (The Netherlands) among 4 pricing managers and Pol Vanaerde, all clients at that time of Pol. It was a continuation of several months of discussions between them how they could share best practices and learn from each other. There was no organisation supporting the pricing community in Europe. By the conclusion of the diner, it was decided that a new organization should be formed to provide a means for pricing managers to share best practices, to learn and discuss common problems in a legal correct environment, respecting the competitive legislation. The principles, code of conduct (checked by competitive lawyers 'Stibbe') and organisation were evaluated and decided. Pol Vanaerde was asked to set-up the formal membership organisation and the discussions resulted in the first formal EPP Pricing Refuel Days in Amsterdam, shortly thereafter followed by trainings and the need for a certification program and ... much more.
From the start , the EPP is designed around 3 important principles ;
