The share of applicants granted full equivalence in Germany varies widely by individual professions and by professional groups. As shown in Figure 1, the proportion of applicants who received full equivalence is especially high in the sales and healthcare sectors. The success rate in the law and administration sector is, on the contrary, extremely low due to significant differences in the law and administration systems among the countries. The success rate in the technical research, development, construction and production control sector as well as in the tourism, hotel and catering sector is not so low, but still below 50%.
