On 25 August, the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy issued a consultation document asking for input into the UK’s approach to the recognition of professional qualifications and the regulation of professions post-Brexit.  Responses are due by 23 October.  One of the main aims is, it is said, to ensure that the way that the UK recognises qualifications from other countries is fair, complements the needs of the UK workforce and maintains high levels of quality and consumer protection.  During the Brexit Transition Period, which expires at the end of 2020, EU law continues to apply in the UK as a result of the terms set out in the Withdrawal Agreement. This means that the UK currently offers recognition routes for professionals from the EU and EFTA (Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland).  These countries in turn provide UK professionals with a route to recognition.
