Last update 05.08.2019

The regulated professions without automatic recognition are:

Specification: practitioners, dentists, veterinary surgeons, pharmacists, midwives, nurses and architects fall into 2 categories:

  • in principle: they are regulated professions with automatic recognition (list 3);
  • unless the diploma has been obtained:
    • in a country outside the European Union (EU); or
    • within the EU but does not meet the criteria set out in the Annexes to Directive 2005/36/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 September 2005 on the recognition of professional qualifications.

In the latter two cases, the professions then belong to list 2.
