Recognition of qualifications

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses approaches to mutual recognition of qualifications. The starting point is Community legislation, but there is a significant bundle of rights flowing from the case law of the Court which might be of assistance to a citizen of the Union seeking to export his or her qualifications, and should operate as an inhibition to competent bodies in the Member States in refusing recognition to qualifications from another Member State without a good faith consideration of their equivalence to national qualifications.

Keywords: Community legislation; recognition of qualifications; qualifications; national qualifications
