ATELIER SEDAP just received the label "ENTREPRISE du PATRIMOINE VIVANT".
The Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company, or EPV) label is a mark of recognition of the French State, put in place to reward French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial skills.
Created by French Law, the EPV label may be awarded "to any undertaking that has economic heritage, consisting in particular of rare, renowned or ancestral skills which draw on a mastery of traditional or technically advanced techniques, and restricted to a particular geographical area".
The procedure for awarding the EPV label is carried out by experts.
The evaluation and interpretation of the award criteria are entrusted to an independent national commission, the Commission Nationale des Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant, composed of professionals who work to promote practices guaranteeing excellence within their own field of activity.
The process for selecting EPV companies is thus a guarantee of their excellence.
EPV is a sound support to the "Made in France" and "French know-how".
