Is citizenship relevant to initiation of the recognition procedure or access to a profession?

No, citizenship is no longer relevant. Moreover, persons from countries that are not in the European Union are also entitled to a review of the equivalence of their professional qualifications. The main criteria now are the substance and quality of professional qualifications , not the applicant's citizenship or country of origin. One's citizenship is now dissociated with the right to practice nearly every profession and trade. There may be some differences in how the regulations governing individual regulated professions and the Länder specialist laws establish access to the recognition process. In some cases, there are no procedures in place to evaluate third-country qualifications.
