European Professional Card

The European Professional Card (EPC), created to help EU professionals move within the EU more easily, was launched one year ago. EPC is the result of joint efforts and efficient cooperation between the European Commission and public administrations in EU countries. The EPC targets the most mobile professions. Currently, it applies to nurses responsible for general care, pharmacists, physiotherapists and others but in the future, the EPC procedure may be extended to other professions. In the first year, 2,100 EPC applications were submitted and more than 700 EPCs were issued. EuCheMS also has an initiative in this field, the European Chemistry Designation (EurChem). The aim of the EurChem designation is to promote the mobility of chemical scientists throughout Europe based on an agreed set of skills, competencies and training.
