The Commission has launched a public consultation on the Professional Qualifications Directive ( 2005/36/EC ) providing everyone with an opportunity to highlight areas of the directive they feel could be simplified and made more user-friendly. The paper also seeks views on how to integrate better professionals working in the Single Market and whether a European Professional Card would facilitate mobility of professionals. 

The results of the consultation will feed into an evaluation report and a green paper due in autumn 2011. The Commission will come forward with a proposal for modernising the directive in 2012.

    Updating this directive is one of the actions set out in the Single Market Act adopted in October 2010 (IP/10/1390) and follows Commission reports on how the directive works in practice (IP/10/1367).
