Work in Germany in the occupation in which you have been trained
The Recognition Act has been in force since 2012 and makes it easier for persons with foreign professional and vocational qualifications to obtain recognition for these qualifications in Germany. BIBB is contributing towards the successful implementation of the new law by providing evaluation research and via the “Recognition in Germany” service portal.
An investigation conducted by the BIBB shows that recognition of applications submitted from abroad is already working well. The stakeholders involved, however, believe that there is still room for improvement.
The 2017 Report on the Recognition Act is now available in English. Based on results from 5 years of monitoring the implementation of the federal recognition act and the findings of this year’s independent evaluation the report draws a positive conclusion. Recognition is working!
A specialist conference entitled “5 years of the Recognition Act – once learned, never forgotten” was held at the Berlin Academy of Arts on 21 June 2017. One of the highlights of the event was the presentation of the results of an independent evaluation of the impact of the law.
The Federal Government today formally adopted the 2017 Report on the Recognition Act, which also contains the results of an extensive impact analysis. Five years after the entry into force of the Federal Recognition Act, the report arrives at a positive interim conclusion.
The "Recognition in Germany" portal provides information on how foreign professional and vocational qualifications can be recognised in Germany. Those seeking advice are able to take advantage of a service which guides them to the authority or chamber responsible for the occupation in question.
Occupational recognition for those interested in moving to Germany
In order to work in Germany in the occupation in which they have trained, foreign skilled workers need to obtain recognition for their qualification. BIBB is acting on behalf of the Federal Government to inform migrants of the recognition procedure before they enter Germany.
How many people seek advice on the recognition of foreign professional and vocational qualifications? Does receiving such guidance automatically lead to an application for recognition? Results of the empirical studies carried out are published in an annual report by the BMBF.
