EU certificate (UK-qualified up to and including Part 2 level)
These certificates are only available to EEA citizens or those who have other enforceable EU rights, e.g. the spouse of an EEA national. This will confirm that you hold qualifications which meet the minimum standards for automatic recognition of qualifications as set out in Article 46 of Directive 2005/36/EC. Typically, this will permit another EEA country to recognise your qualifications as equivalent to their own national qualifications at the same level, and if applicable, access to its final qualifying examinations etc.
EU registered certificate (UK-qualified up to and including Part 3 level)
These certificates are only available to EEA citizens or those who have other enforceable EU rights, e.g. the spouse of an EEA national. This will confirm that you hold qualifications which meet the minimum standards for automatic recognition of qualifications as set out in Article 46 of Directive 2005/36/EC, and that you have secured the UK ‘accompanying certificate’ of Part 3, as required under Annex V (5.7.1) of the Directive. Typically, this should enable another EEA state to recognise your qualifications for access to the profession of architect without any further compensation measures.
