Regulated professions

German: reglementierte Berufe

In Germany, there are regulated professions. This means that Germans and non-Germans are only allowed to work in these professions if they have obtained a very specific qualification. This applies, for example, to nurses, doctors, teachers and lawyers. It also applies to certain master craftsmen and women if they work as self-employed entrepreneurs. Persons with a foreign qualification who wish to work in Germany in a regulated profession require recognition of their foreign qualification or a professional license
