The list of required documents to be submitted by the
applicant within a recognition procedure may depend on the purpose of
recognition, on the authority in charge of the recognition and on the country
where the qualification was obtained.
The purpose of the submission of those documents is to
obtain relevant details on different elements/components of a qualification
(level, nature, duration, workload, awarding institution, academic/professional
rights, etc.) in order to evaluate it in another system.
It is fundamental to contact the authority/institution
in charge of the recognition procedure in order to know which documents are
needed/accepted and how/where obtain those ones: some documents (or a specific
typology of those) that exist in a certain country, may not exist in another
In general terms, the most required documents are:
copy of the qualification in the
original language (duly legalised if it is the case);
sworn/certified translation of the
qualification (in case it is not in a widely spoken language);
copy of the Diploma Supplement or similar information source (i.e. transcripts);
copy of ID card.
In order to obtain all the specific and pertinent information
on documents required and accepted during a specific recognition procedure,
please referred to the authority/institution in charge of the evaluation
procedure of your qualification.
You can also find information on policies
and procedures for the recognition of qualifications in each ENIC-NARIC
country page (right column) or

of that country for expert assistance.
