Can an application for recognition be renewed?

If other assessment procedures – carried out as per the Federal Expellees Act, the Professional Qualifications Assessment Act or occasioned by other regulations such as those pertaining to the equivalence of Austrian or French examination certificates – already produced positive results, a renewed application may be submitted. However, the responsible authority should decline processing such an application.

If another recognition procedure could not establish equivalence, renewed application under the Professional Qualifications Assessment Act (BQFG) is allowed.

In the event that circumstances change for an applicant's benefit following a recognition procedure completed earlier (as a result of gaining additional qualifications, for instance), the process can be initiated again (cf. Article 51 Administrative Procedure Act and corresponding Länder laws).
