Non-regulated professions

German: nicht reglementierte Berufe

There are no state regulations in terms of authorisation to practice for non-regulated professions. This means that individuals are permitted to work in these professions without authorisation to practice. These professions include for example all professions in dual vocational education and training.

In non-regulated professions, individuals with a foreign professional qualification are able to apply for jobs directly on the German labour market. Alternatively they can work on a self-employed basis in this profession. They do not require recognition of their professional qualification for this.
However, individuals with foreign professional qualifications are also entitled to a recognition procedure for non-regulated professions.
