Since the Recognition Acts entered in force, the state government and the federal states established an extensive range of information structures aimed to support their implementation. The three information portals for recognition of foreign professional qualifications, “BQ-Portal”, “Recognition in Germany” and “anabin”, are central in this context. Their close cooperation ensures high quality content and consistency.
The BQ-Portal offers a comprehensive online work and knowledge sharing platform, which helps the assessment authorities and companies to better assess and evaluate vocational and further training qualifications obtained abroad.
On the portal “Recognition in Germany” the holders of foreign qualifications can find out, if their qualifications need to be officially recognized in order to practice their profession in Germany.
The database “anabin” provides information to evaluate foreign qualifications and assists public authorities, employers, employees as well as private persons in classifying a foreign qualification within the German education system.
