Professionals in the EU can move across borders and practice their occupation or provide services abroad. These web pages provide practical information on EU legislation governing the recognition of professional experience in the EU.
In each EU country, workers are required to obtain special qualifications or specific job titles to perform regulated professions. Different requirements across the EU may make it difficult for qualified professionals to apply for jobs in other EU countries. It may also be difficult to get information on what conditions these professionals have to comply with to be able to work in another country.
The database on regulated professions provides:
information on regulated professions in all EU countries, EEA countries and Switzerland;
statistics on professionals moving abroad and on temporary mobility;
an interactive map;
useful links and contacts.
