  • Common Training Principles, inclusive of Common Training Frameworks and Standardised Training Tests, noting that the onus is on professional organisations and competent authorities to make the initial suggestions of what, when and how.

  • Mutual Evaluation, with two aspects already started by the Commission on 2nd October. Major drive for transparency and no particular form of regulation.

  • Partial Access, and possible reasons for a MS to refuse.

  • Traineeships – partially qualified professionals.

What else is happening
What else is happening?

  • Parallel CEPLIS Working Group on Common Values, chaired by John Fish of IIPA

  • Commission’s 2nd October Evaluation Projects on:

    • Evaluating national regulations on access to professions

    • Outcome of the peer review on legal form, shareholding and tariff requirements under the Services Directive.

Where do we go from here
Where do we go from here?

  • Who else wants to be involved – primarily but not necessarily by correspondence – more representative assessment of questionnaire questions?

  • The No 1 priority at present is NCP/PSC and E-government – mainly national. What is good or bad?

  • No 2 priority is CPD – CEPLIS has a WGp on CPD – how do we progress on this? Which WGp leads?

  • Two areas need prof association initiative (ie EPC and CTP) – who is doing anything? Who will lead on each?

  • IMI may not be an issue directly – but it underpins others? Shared experiences? Level of detail?

Any questions
