We take a practical approach to collaboration between professional healthcare regulators in Europe.

The Edinburgh and Portugal Agreements

The Edinburgh Agreement and the Portugal Agreement set out actions for European regulators. The proposed actions are appropriate to the context and approach of each regulator.

Current projects

We are working towards EU-wide implementation of a Certificate of Current Professional Status. This will help regulators to register professionals from other European countries.

To help keep patients safe, regulators may need extra information about the history of a healthcare professional. To meet this need, we have developed a Memorandum of Understanding on Case by Case and Proactive Information Exchange. A number of European healthcare regulators developed this memorandum.
