Recognition of professional qualifications
Based on the Withdrawal Agreement, which entered into force on 1st February 2020, the current situation is to be maintained till the end of the transition period, i.e. 31st December 2020, unless otherwise stated.
The currently used rules in accordance with Directive 2005/36/EC on the recognition of professional qualifications are to be applied during the transition period. The abovementioned directive falls under the agenda of Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic. The future relation with the United Kingdom, including procedures of recognition of qualifications, will follow the agreement on the future relation which is to be negotiated during the transition period. Regarding the competences of the Ministry of Health, recognition of medical and non-medical professional qualifications is the primary point of interest.
