Legal basis

The recognition of continuing education that deviates from the regulations of the Continuing Education Regulations must be applied for at the Chamber. The applicant must prove the equivalence of the deviating continuing training to the continuing training course regulated in the annex to the continuing education regulations for the area or area applied for.

In addition, the provisions of the Chamber Act are binding for the health professions.

Continuing training outside the Member States of the European Union or States Parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area may be credited in whole or in part if it complies with the principles of the Continuing Education Regulations and if further training of at least 24 months has been completed in a desired area or area in the Federal Republic of Germany.

The same applies to training in a Member State of the European Union or in another State party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area if it has been completed by a veterinarian who is not a national of a Member State or of another Contracting State.
