New recognition statistics now in the BQ-Portal

The Federal Statistical Office published the statistics on the Recognition Act this October. Over 17.000 applications for recognition of foreign professional qualifications were processed in 2015 in Germany. In most of the cases, full or partial equivalence could be established. Only 2.6% of the applicants received a negative ruling.

Therefore the BQ-Portal took a closer look at this high success rate: The section Recognition Statistics 2015 provides an overview of the success rates of applications for professional recognition by professional groups, professions, regions and countries.
