Professional Qualifications Directive

The purpose of the European Union’s Professional Qualifications Directive is to facilitate employment in another EU or EEA country. The directive establishes rules according to which member states must recognise the professional qualifications obtained by an EU or EEA citizen in another member state.
The Finnish National Agency for Education functions as the national assistance centre referred to in the Professional Qualifications Directive.
