Recognition by professional group 2015

The share of those granted full equivalence in the health and sales sector stands at more than 75%. 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 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 informatics, information and communication technology sector as well as in the mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics  sector and the building technology and supply sector is not so low, but still below 50%.
