What is a regulated profession?

A profession is said to be regulated when access and exercise is subject to the possession of a specific professional qualification.

Regulated professions in this database

This database contains lists of regulated professions in the EU member states, EEA countries and Switzerland covered by the Directive 2005/36/EC.

Regulated professions are grouped together under generic headings called "generic professions". This is to help find regulated professions which are listed in the language of the country in which they are regulated.

The profession's generic heading cover professions regulated in different Member States, which may cover different activities.
