What is the Professional Qualifications Directive about?


According to national laws or regulations, the practice of certain professions can be subject to having particular qualifications, e.g. for those who wish to become accountants, architects, engineers or physiotherapists. Training requirements for obtaining such professional qualifications can differ from country to country and may, therefore, make the exercise of a profession in another Member State quite difficult, even impossible.

odernisation of the Professional Qualifications Directive
 A few decades ago, a person who was a fully qualified professional in one EU country would not necessarily have met the requirements to practise in another EU country unless he/she had completed an entire training course in the latter (host Member State). European rules on mutual recognition of qualifications were introduced in the past to overcome this difficulty. These were consolidated into the Professional Qualifications Directive which came into force in 2005.

If a professional wishes to relocate to another Member State in order to establish himself as either self-employed or in a job with a new employer in his professional field, he may be required to apply to have his professional qualifications recognised.

About 740 categories of regulated professions exist across the 28 Member States. A regulated profession implies that access to a profession is subject to a person holding a specific qualification, such as a diploma from a university. In order to find out more about the specific professions regulated in Member States, please consult the Regulated Professions Database (compiled from information made available by Member States).

The modernisation of the Directive responds to the need to have a smoother system of recognition of qualifications supporting the mobility of professionals across Europe.

The modernisation of the Directive does not constitute a radical change to the policy on recognition of professional qualifications. On the contrary, it reaffirms the underlying philosophy of mutual recognition and mutual trust between Member States, whilst exploring innovative ways to better reflect it in practice. In particular, it does not touch on the fundamental principle of automatic recognition of qualifications for certain professions.
