European Professional Card Recognition

Would you like to pursue your profession temporarily or permanently in other European countries?

The European Professional Card (EPC) is an electronic proof that your professional qualification is recognised by another EU country. The EPC will be issued to you on request by electronic procedure (EPC procedure). The EPC procedure is simpler, faster and more transparent than the traditional procedures for recognising professional qualifications.

The following advantages are offered by the European professional card:

  • The authorities of your country of origin will help you with your application and check that it is properly completed and complete. You also check the authenticity and validity of your documents.
  • If you wish to apply for establishment or temporary provision of services in another EU country in the future, your dossier is already in the system and you do not need to upload your documents a second time. This saves you time on further applications.
  • If the authorities responsible for your application do not take a decision within the specified time limit, recognition is automatic.
