Recognition of professional qualifications

Howard Davies

This policy brief gives an update on aspects of the recognition of professional qualifications that are particularly relevant to European universities.

It includes a brief digest of some of the significant features of the 2016-2020 period, including the implementation of the European Commission’s Professional Qualifications Directive, the Proportionality Directive and the Common Training Frameworks. It also provides a glance at professional qualifications in the context of the new Commission, with a focus on the Green Deal, the One Health initiative and Mutual Recognition Agreements. Finally, the brief looks at Brexit, specifically the provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement and the prospects for a future EU-UK Association Agreement, in relation to the overarching topic.
