Decision Paper on the Recognition Processes for Professional Qualifications for entry to the Safe Electric and RGI Schemes

The CRU has today, 02 August 2019, published a Decision Paper, on the Recognition Processes for Professional Qualifications for entry to the Safe Electric and RGI Schemes.

The European Recognition of Professional Qualifications Directive 2005/36/EC, as amended by the Directive 2013/55/EU, obliges the CRU to put in place a system of recognition for the qualifications of people from all EU Member States applying for registration to the schemes.  

This decision paper sets out the CRU’s decision on the recognition processes. The recognition processes for scheme applicants whose qualifications were awarded outside of the Republic of Ireland were drafted in consultation with SOLAS, QQI, RECI, RGII and other subject matter experts.  

The recognition processes propose a mechanism for people with relevant non-Irish qualifications to become registered while maintaining the competency of RGIs and QCs in the schemes. Applicants will be required to fill out an application form with the relevant details and have their qualification(s) reviewed by a panel of experts as outlined in the paper. The panel of experts will then decide if the gap between an applicant’s qualification(s) and the relevant accepted Irish qualification(s) can be bridged by the application of compensation measures.
