The foremost aim of the A.I.E.P. is to unite the leading philatelic experts of all nations. The Association promotes and encourages the worldwide co-operation and the exchange of opinions between experts. It informs its members about the latest technologies in the production of forgeries and in the detection of forgeries and repairs.
The Association co-operates with similarly engaged national and international organisations in the fight against forgeries. It encopurages and supports publications of studies dealing with expertising and/or forgeries.
Last but not least, the A.I.E.P. tries to impress on collectors and dealers the role of expert opinions for the benefit and protection of philately.
