Because of Brexit, official recognition of professional qualifications in the UK is required from now on. The recognition is also necessary for temporary or occasional professional services in the UK. The recognition of professional qualifications is a decision made by the relevant regulatory authority in the UK.
The UK recognizes qualifications from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein which are of an equivalent standard to UK qualifications. The following link will take you to the list, of regulated professions in the UK.
Please note that some professions have separate regulators in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Therefore, please ensure that you contact the relevant regulatory authority in the country in which you want to work.
Different rules apply to Swiss nationals and family members of Swiss nationals.
If you already had a qualification or started your qualification before 01/01/2021, your application for recognition in the UK will be completed under EU rules. This is the case even if the application was made after 31/12/2020, as long as it is made before 31/12/2024.
Professional qualifications that were officially recognised before 1 January 2021 will remain valid after Brexit.
Different rules apply to architects, auditors, lawyers and healthcare professionals.
