President Gašparovič signs act on recognition of foreign qualifications

President Ivan Gašparovič has signed a new law on the recognition of foreign qualifications, Margita Ivančíková from the President's Office press department said on June 13.

The act, approved by parliament at its first reading on March 20, is aimed at smoothing the process of recognising educational qualifications from other EU countries.

The document should make things easier for citizens of EU-member states who wish to work in Slovakia by helping them overcome difficulties with red tape.

The act is in line with the EU directive on the recognition of specialist qualifications, which is due to be adopted into Slovak legislation by September 27, 2007.
