BPP Expert wanted!

BPP Experts wanted!

As a specialized collector, have you ever toyed with the idea of using your knowledge to become a stamp expert? Or have you ever been annoyed by an expert and thought: what he can do, I can do at least as well?

If one of the points applies, maybe just you are the ideal candidate to strengthen our ranks! We are constantly anxious to look for new members for our federation internationally recognized for 61 years, which satisfy our requirements. From small beginnings the BPP grew to the largest national stamp expert federation.

We are also anxious to find experts for still “unoccupied” areas. The “Michel” catalogues, in whose appendix all expert areas are listed, provide an indication of this. We have an age limit: you should be under 65.

If you are interested, we offer a non-binding “trial seminar” on 25.1.2020 in Mülheim/Ruhr, where you can get a first impression of the tasks of an stamp expert. Short lectures give an overview of the requirements for interested parties of the modern age, semi-classics and classical expert areas. Afterwards there will be enough time for answering your questions or for a personal discussion with active experts. In any case, we would be pleased to meet you! And don’t worry: all active BPP experts started as “normal” collectors!

The participation is free of charge, the registration fee of 20,- serves to cover the catering costs on the seminar day (10 – 17 o’clock). Your registration must be made by the end of November. Since we want to take ourselves much time for you, the circle of participants is limited. After your registration a written confirmation of participation will be sent to you – only after that the mentioned costs have to be transferred. We are happy to answer any questions you may have by telephone (+49 951 – 4 26 20) or by email: or via the BPP office (+49 7732 – 5 24 12), Email:

Advanced training seminar for BPP Experts in Pullach

The sun was rare this weekend, but instead it rained almost continuously in Pullach near Munich when eight BPP examiners gathered for a further training seminar at the “Hotel Seitnerhof” on 21 and 22 July.

The two lecturers, President Christian Geigle and Vice President Dr. Peter Provinsky, galloped with them through the newly created “Auditor’s Handbook” with its many regulations, in which the BPP regulates the work of its members, their relationship among themselves and their duties towards the association.
