New CPQ professional qualifications website is now live

The website for UK NARIC’s new Centre for Professional Qualifications (CPQ) is now live and online. The CPQ incorporates the designated ‘Assistance Centre’ under EU Directive 2013/55/EU on professional qualifications, and replaces the UK National Contact Point for Professional Qualifications (UK NCP) under the older EU Directive 2005/36/EC.

The CPQ has a wider remit than the UK NCP, and will offer advice and support to non-EU nationals, as well as to EU nationals, professional bodies, government bodies and other stakeholders involved in professional qualification recognition.

The CPQ performs the designated national Assistance Centre role for the UK, regarding the mutual recognition of professional qualifications, as required by the new EU Directive 2013/55/EU that came into force in January 2016.

For further information on the work of the CPQ, please visit www.naric.org.uk/cpq or email cpq@naric.org.uk

The CPQ will be running briefings, seminars and update events on professional qualifications issues - look out for announcements in future editions of this newsletter and on the CPQ website.
