European Professional Card

Characteristics: 

The purpose of the European Professional Card is to facilitate the recognition of professional qualifications abroad in Europe and to enable members of regulated professions to work throughout the EU. This is to be achieved through the closer involvement of the competent authorities from the countries of origin and the use of electronic procedures. The European Professional Card is a paperless electronic certificate which is deposited by the issuing authority in the Internal Market System (IMI). This allows competent authorities in other EU/EEA Member States to find out about the holder’s professional qualifications.

Professions:

Pursuant to the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/983 of 24 June 2015, a European Professional Card can be issued for the following professions:

#1 Nurse for general care;
