The site gives detailed explanations of EU legislation covering:
- temporary mobility (temporary provision of services)
- automatic recognition of professional qualifications
- recognition of professional experience in certain activities
- the “general system”
There are contact points in every EU country that can give you information on the recognition of your professional qualifications (national law, procedures to be followed) and guide you through the administrative formalities you need to complete. You can also use the one-stop shop provided for by the “Services directive”.
National authorities may need to cooperate with each other when considering your application for recognition. They may also use the IMI system to facilitate cooperation.
National competent authorities decide whether or not to recognise professional qualifications obtained in other EU countries, in accordance with European legislation. In so doing, they are also expected to follow the common rules set out in a Code of Conduct.
