A Cross-Country Report on "The State of Play of Regulated Professions, as Defined by Council Directive 92/51/EEC, in the Candidate Countries of Central and Eastern Europe." Professional Qualifications.
This document examines the state of regulated professions, as defined by Council of the European Communities Directive 92/51/EEC, in those Central and Eastern European countries that are candidates for admission into the European Union. The introduction discusses Council Directive 92/51/EEC, previous directives, and the national case studies on regulated professions on which this report is based. Chapters 2-4 review the following aspects of the directive's implementation: (1) scope of Council Directive 92/51/EEC (categories of regulated professions and activities in the candidate countries and the directive's scope in relation to other directives); (2) levels of the general system directives (division of professions into levels, bridges between levels, attestation of competence); and (3) ways of implementing the directive (vertical versus horizontal approaches, candidate countries' legislative framework, current regulations on foreigners' access and bilateral agreements). The following aspects of the directive's administration are discussed in chapters 5-8: role of the competent authorities; role of the national coordinator; general trends; and recommendations regarding European Training Foundation contributions to future activities. Appended are a description of the model of implementation of the general system for mutual recognition of qualification papers in Denmark and a discussion of the scope of the second general directive in Denmark.
