The share of applicants granted full equivalence in Germany varies widely among the individual professions and among the professional groups. As shown in Figure 1, the proportion of applicants who received full equivalence is especially high in the sales sector. The share of those granted full equivalence makes up over 60 % also in the food production and processing sector, corporate management and company administration sector, in mathematics biology, chemistry and physics sector, as well as in medical healthcare sector. On the other hand, the success rate in the law and administration sector is extremely low due to significant differences in the law and administration systems among the countries. The success rate in the machine and vehicle technology sectorr, the technical research, development, construction & production control sector and the non medical health care, personal care and medical technology sector is not so low, but still below 50%.
