The creation of the COP (Spanish College of Psychologists) was of enormous significance in establishing the identity of psychology in Spain. The organization, aimed at organizing and representing the profession, has not stopped growing, despite the serious internal and external issues it has had. This article presents a legislative and documentary review, particularly based on its representative publication, Papeles del Psicólogo/Psychologist Papers. We analyze the second stage of the COP, that of professionalization, decentralization, and reorganization as the Spanish Psychological Association, taking into account its role in the internal and international projection of the discipline as a whole.
