The European Professional Card is a file in the Internal Market Information System IMI. Its purpose is to facilitate the recognition of professional qualifications and to enable regulated professions to work anywhere in the EU. This will be achieved through greater involvement of the competent authorities of the countries of origin and the use of electronic procedures.
Currently, it is possible to apply for a European professional card for the following regulated professions:
- Physiotherapist (m/f)
- Health and nurse (m/f
- Pharmacist (m/f)
- Mountain guide (regulated only in Bavaria)
- Real estate agent (m/f)
