European Commission launches consultation on the European Professional Card

The objective of the European Commissions consultation is to seek further views and collect data on issues including the mobility of professionals, application procedures & fees in the different EU countries from the professional associations & the authorities responsible for recognition of professional qualifications. The Commission will use the responses to assess whether the EPC is appropriate for the professions concerned, and what impact it will have on EU countries.

Please refer to the following consultation page for more information about the deadlines and on how to submit a contribution:


 In addition, please be informed that the Commission will soon launch a separate data collection exercise addressed to the competent authorities concerning possible impact of the European Professional Card on their administrative costs.
