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, the UK and Switzerland.

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.

Further information on regulated professions

Qualified professionals wishing to obtain recognition for establishment or wanting to provide services on a temporary and occasional basis within the EU Member States, EEA countries or Switzerland should seek advice from the relevant Contact Point in the future host country (EU Member States, EEA countries and Switzerland).

The contact points are responsible for providing general information on recognition of professional qualifications provided for in Directive 2005/36/EC as well as on competent authorities and national legislation governing the professions.
