(a) Eligibility for recognition
If the MRA is based on recognition of qualifications, then it should, where applicable, state:
- the minimum level of education required (entry requirements, length of study, subjects studied);
- the minimum level of experience required (location, length and conditions of practical training or supervised professional practice prior to licensing, framework of ethical and disciplinary standards);
- examinations passed (esp. examinations of professional competence);
- the extent to which home country qualifications are recognised in the host country;
- the qualifications which the parties are prepared to recognise, for instance, by listing particular diplomas or certificates issued by certain institutions, or by reference to particular minimum requirements to be certified by the authorities of the country of origin, including whether the possession of a certain level of qualification would allow recognition for some activities but not others.
If the MRA is based on recognition of the licensing or registration decision made by regulators in the country of origin, it should specify the mechanism by which eligibility for such recognition may be established.
(b) Additional requirements for recognition in the host state ("compensatory measures")
Where it is considered necessary to provide for additional requirements, in order to ensure the quality of the service, the MRA should set out the conditions under which those requirements may apply, e.g. in case of shortcomings in relation to qualification requirements in the host country or knowledge of local law, practice, standards and regulations. (...) Licensing and other provisions in the host country
- the MRA should also set out the means by which, and the conditions under which, a licence is actually obtained following the establishment of eligibility, and what this licence entails (a licence and its content, membership of a professional body, use of professional and/or academic titles etc.). Any licensing requirements other than qualifications should be explained, e.g.:
-- an office address, an establishment requirement or a residency requirement;
-- a language requirement;
-- proof of good conduct and financial standing;
-- professional indemnity insurance;
-- compliance with host country's requirements for use of trade/firm names;
-- compliance with host country ethics (for instance independence and incompatibility)

Training of a skilled worker requires some 12 months and over. Some lower certificate level skilled qualifications can be delivered in 6-8 months. (...) The occupational and qualifications structure of the employed workforce is to be applied as a proxy of the job structure since there is no uniform practice to assess the qualifications requirements for each job in the economy. (...) Most of Russian employers do not require any qualification from new recruits. They are trained on the job.

First Meeting (Cairo, Egypt, 15 - 17 October 2012)
Agenda Item 4: Certification Process and Implementation Issues
AIRPORT PERSONNEL MINIMUM QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENT FOR AERODROME CERTIFICATION
(Presented by Egypt)
This working paper presents the actions by Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority (ECAA) to identify the key areas of operational safety competence for the aerodrome Operators for more efficiency of the Implementation of Certification of Egyptian Aerodromes as required in Annex 14, Volume I.
1.1 The advent of privatization and the consequent commercially oriented, business driven objectives have assumed a higher priority and management structures and skills have shifted towards a more business focused culture.
1.2 The Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority develops the aerodrome regulation to identify the minimum qualification of the key personnel management and encourage to implement this requirement by conducting training courses in safety and operation field
2. (...) ACTION BY THE MEETING
3.1 The meeting is invited to:
a) note the information contained in this working paper; and reference of the some

ns in 1;4.3. (...) One possibility is to add a category of assessment “with distinction” meaning the student (potential instructor) must have excelled in the course and then, to add that the instructor should know more than just the basic, minimum criteria, by taking a course that covers the additional aspects of Table 1-4.
1.5 In order to convey the required “function specific” aspects of the Instructions an instructor must have experience in that field; however at present the Instructions are silent on any type of experience being required or alternate method for achieving that experience or knowledge.
1.6 To address the issues of difficult to interpret language and qualifications falling short of industry best practices it is proposed that there be some additional requirements added into 1;4.3. (...) An alternative to this working knowledge is a dedicated training programme for instructors, which would supplement the working knowledge requirements. Proof from the employer that the instructor has undergone such a programme or a programme approved by the appropriate national authority is required.
4.3.6 Instructors should also undertake a “hands-on” experience programme (i.e. job shadowing) in a variety of roles requiring dangerous goods training.
4.3.7 Where possible, new instructors of dangerous goods training programmes should construct and co-facilitate dangerous goods courses together with an established instructor.

The workshop enhanced the capacities of the MoLSA, VTC and MoE technical staff to review and develop the TVET curriculum as per the requirements of the national Technical and Vocational Qualification Framework (TVQF). (...) Throughout the training participants were required to reflect on the current labor market needs which would result in improved employment outcomes for young people.
(...) The workshop adopted a competency-based training approach for the purpose of clearly understanding the National Qualifications Framework and the requirements of the Iraqi labor market for the required professions, especially as we are going through a crisis regarding the weakness of the private sector and also to improve professions in Iraq, which leads to the improvement of the Iraqi economy.”

For the purposes of this Recommendation and without prejudice to the definitions States may use in their internal administrative systems and laws,
'higher education' means all types of studies, training or training for research at the post-secondary level, provided by universities or other educational establishments, that are approved as institutions of higher education by the competent State authorities;
'qualification in higher education' means any diploma, degree or other qualifying certificate that is awarded by an institution of higher education, or another appropriate authority, that establishes that the holder has successfully completed a course of study and qualifies him or her either to continue to a further stage of study or to practice a profession not requiring further special preparation;
'partial studies' means any homogeneous fraction of a course at the first stage or at more advanced stages of higher studies that has been evaluated and authenticated and, while not a complete course in itself, can be equated with a significant acquisition of knowledge or skill;
'secondary education' means studies of any kind that follow primary, elementary or basic education and are a prerequisite for admission to higher education;
'recognition' of a foreign qualification in higher education means its acceptance by the competent authorities of the State concerned (whether they be governmental or non-governmental) as entitling its holder to be considered under the same conditions as those holding a comparable qualification awarded in that State and deemed comparable, for the purposes of access to or further pursuit of higher education studies, participation in research, the practice of a profession if this does not require the passing of examinations or further special preparation, or all the foregoing, according to the scope of the recognition;
'recognition' of a foreign certificate of secondary education for the purpose of undertaking studies at the higher level means its acceptance by the competent authorities of the State concerned as entitling its holder to be considered for admission to its higher education institutions under the same conditions as the holder of a comparable qualification or certificate awarded in that State;
'recognition' of a foreign qualification or of a foreign certificate of partial studies of higher education means acceptance by the competent authorities of the State concerned that the holder is entitled to be considered for further studies at its higher education and research institutions under the same conditions as those pertaining to the holder of a comparable qualification or certificate awarded in that State;
'recognition' of a foreign qualification in higher education with a view to the practice of a profession means acceptance by the competent authorities of the professional preparation of the holder for the practice of the profession concerned, without prejudice, however, to the legal and professional rules or procedures in force in the States concerned and provided the holder would be entitled to practice the same profession in the State in which the professional preparation and qualification had been obtained; such recognition does not exempt the holder of the foreign qualification from complying with any other conditions for the practice of the profession concerned that may be laid down by the competent governmental or professional authorities in the States concerned.
2. (...) When considering the measures to be taken to achieve broader recognition of qualifications in higher education, Member States should apply the provisions spelled out below by taking whatever legislative or other steps may be required to give effect, within their respective territories, to the principles set forth in this Recommendation.
4. (...) Member States should take all feasible steps within the framework of their national systems and in conformity with their constitutional, legal and regulatory provisions to encourage the competent authorities concerned to give recognition, as defined in paragraph 1(e), to qualifications in higher education that are awarded in the other Member States, with a view to enabling their holders to pursue further studies, training or training for research in their institutions of higher education, subject to all academic admission requirements obtaining for nationals of that State.

Article VI.4 of the WTO's General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) calls upon WTO members to develop any necessary disciplines to ensure that measures relating to qualification requirements and procedures, technical standards and licensing requirements and procedures do not constitute unnecessary barriers to trade in services. (...) For these delegations, the text seeks to ensure that rules on licensing and qualification requirements and procedures, and technical standards are clear, transparent and predictable. (...) Co-sponsors propose disciplines to apply to measures relating to licensing and qualification requirements and procedures, and technical standards, in sectors that Members have liberalized in the WTO.
