The revised professional qualifications Directive 2013/55/EU comes into force.

This Directive, which amends the Professional Qualifications Directive 2005/36/EC, should be implemented in all the Member States by January 2016. It contains multiple amendments to the professional qualifications Directive including provisions to facilitate the recognition of cross-border professional traineeships in all Member States, and a European-wide review on restriction on access to practice law.
