Welcome to UK NCP's website...

Welcome to the UK NCP, the National Contact Point for Professional Qualifications in the United Kingdom. We are part of a wider network of Contact Points in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.

The function of UK NCP is to aid the mobility of professionals throughout Europe.

We can do this by providing the contact details of the appropriate Competent Authority in the UK and in the rest of Europe, as well as clarifying the regulations surrounding your profession in the UK.
