Overall statistics for establishment

The statistics show the number of decisions taken on recognition of professional qualifications for the purpose of permanent establishment within the EU Member States, EEA countries and Switzerland.

These statistics below cover decisions taken for all professions.
The type of decisions is indicated in the columns. The country where the qualification was obtained is indicated in the rows.

By default, the decisions taken by all host countries for all levels of directive and for all periods* are shown. It is also possible to filter statistics by period, by recognition regime, country and by generic profession.

*2005-2006 statistics (automatic recognition only) for "Sectoral professions" are available separately on the "Geography of mobility" page of each sectoral profession.
