Question for written answer E-001205-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Sergio Gutiérrez Prieto (S&D)

 Subject:  Qualified professions
 Answer in writing 

The qualification of Industrial Organisation Engineer used to be a specialism in Industrial Engineering degrees. Subsequently, it became a qualification in its own right.

In this respect, the mechanisms used to recognise professional qualifications consider whether the profession is a qualified profession or a regulated profession.

In Spain, qualifications in the field of industrial engineering with skills that overlap with industrial engineers in Europe — Industrial Organisation Engineering — are not recognised as professional qualifications as they do not provide access to regulated professions. As such, Spain does not have the domestic conditions required for cross-border measures to have an impact, nor for them to be valid for all citizens of the European Union.

1. What is the Commission doing to prevent discrimination based on State of Origin?

2. What steps is it taking to ensure that industrial organisation engineers can fully exercise their profession on a level footing with other engineers in Spain and the European Union?
