The European Committee for Au Pair Standards (ECAPS) is a committee established in April 2006 with the objective of defining au pair standards within Europe. It aims to establish one set of rules and guidelines for au pairs, host families and au pair agencies. Existing recognized national au pair associations participate in ECAPS.

One seat is available on the committee for each European country. National au pair associations wishing to join the committee will have to meet the participation criteria. There is an advisory board to support the committee’s activities, which will include discussions at a political level with the Council of Europe, the European Commission and individual governments.
