UK NARIC Brexit Readiness forums for competent authorities

As part of the Business Readiness initiative of the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, UK NARIC is offering free regulator support sessions during October to the competent authorities responsible for the regulated professions and professional titles within the current scope of Directive 2005/36/EC.

UK NARIC is also providing support to UK-based businesses employing regulated and/or licensed professionals in the run-up to Brexit.

For competent authorities, we are pleased to offer two days where you can attend a free forum to provide information on future changes to the recognition of professional qualifications after Brexit, and to discuss any anticipated issues associated with business readiness in the run up to 31 October, including:

  • Inbound professional qualification recognition for those qualified in the EEA, EEA-EFTA States, Switzerland and the Republic of Ireland
  • Outbound professional qualification recognition in the EEA, EEA-EFTA States, Switzerland and the Republic of Ireland
