UK and Switzerland to Recognize Respective Professional Qualifications

On June 14, 2023, Switzerland and the United Kingdom signed a new agreement recognizing professional qualifications in both countries.

Under the agreement, UK-qualified professionals in regulated sectors who wish to have their qualifications recognized in Switzerland will have a reliable and clear system to do so; and vice versa.

The agreement, which follows the launch of negotiations last month in Bern on a new UK-Switzerland free trade agreement, will enter into force at the start of 2025.
