In most democratic countries the press is not state controlled. (International) Press cards are therefore issued by trade associations, trade unions or press agencies, not from government authorities. Note: 'Government approved' or 'official' press cards are therefore myths. Some nationally active trade associations often like to issue, misleadingly, 'officially approved press cards'. Experts know: there is no such thing as officially or state approved press cards.

Recognition under public law: Independent of the legal situation, the de facto recognition of the European Press Federation press card occurs through practical use. The press card of the European Press Federation enjoys special trust and is recognised by hundreds of companies and organisations. For example, with the EPF press card you can make a claim to receive information from the authorities.
