EU Professional qualifications 2011

759 views

In consultation with stakeholders, the European Commission is seeking to modernise the Professional Qualifications Directive (Directive 2005/36/EC). According to national laws or regulations, qualification requirements determine access to a profession. National training requirements for obtaining a professional qualification can differ from country to country and may, therefore, make the right to exercise one’s profession in another Member State quite difficult, even impossible. The Green Paper outlines possible ways forward that build on past achievements while developing new approaches to enhance mobility. For instance, the introduction of a professional card closely linked to the Internal Market Information System (IMI) could make it considerably easier for professionals to have their qualifications recognised in another Member State. Similarly, stakeholders are invited to give their input about the potential of new common platforms to facilitate the mobility of professionals where there is no automatic recognition by developing sets of commonly agreed criteria for professional qualifications. In addition, the minimum training requirements of certain professions (e.g. some health professions and architects) could be reformed.
