Working Group 1

Mutual recognition and joint programmes

Mutual recognition was the starting point of ECA in 2003 and reaching the first mutual recognition agreements in 2007 was a milestone of the ECA project. The working group continued to focus on mutual recognition of the accreditation of joint programmes. Evaluating the implementation of these agreements, further developing of the mutual recognition methodology and identifying the most useful areas of application in co-operation with stakeholders such as ENIC-NARICs and joint programmes are central features of the current work of WG 1.
