The European Professional Card (EPC) is an electronic procedure you can use to have your professional qualifications recognised in another EU country. It is easier and quicker to manage than traditional qualification recognition procedures, and more transparent: you can keep track of your application on-line and re-use already uploaded documents to start new applications for different countries.
For the moment, you can use the EPC procedure only if you are:
- a nurse responsible for general care
- a pharmacist
- a physiotherapist
- a mountain guide
- a real estate agent
Other professionals will have to rely on standard procedures to have their professional qualifications recognised. In the future, the EPC procedure may be extended to other professions.
