12 April 2018: 5th Parliamentary Meeting of the Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant at the Assemblée Nationale

The Institut Supérieur des Métiers, in close partnership with M. Philippe Huppé, member of parliament for Hérault, is organising the 5th Parliamentary Meeting of the Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV). Presided by Mme Delphine Gény-Stephann, Secretary of State for the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the event will take place on 12 April 2017 from 9 am to 12.30 pm. Meeting in the Salle Colbert at the Palais Bourbon, it will bring together MPs, Senators and the directors of EPV-labelled companies.

Organised by the Institut Supérieur des Métiers, which works specifically towards education and promotion of the label, this meeting is aimed at raising awareness and improving knowledge of the National EPV label, the flagship for Made in France products.

It is vital to amplify awareness among public sector stakeholders by promoting the label among regional and parliamentary politicians, who work with companies in the field on a daily basis to preserve and develop economic activity in their regions.


There are currently 1,419 prestigious companies who have been awarded the label representing over 65,000 jobs and an overall turnover of more than 14 billion euros. As model examples of competitive and innovative companies, EPV status acts as a storefront for French expertise and the prestige standard for exports.

This is why such issues are at the heart of the debates to be held at the 5th Parliamentary Meeting of the Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant.
This meeting will specifically promote the international reach of our expertise in excellence. It will be organised around two round tables: "Conveying expertise: issues in training and apprenticeship" and "The EPV label, an asset for international success".
