This report describes the development of an online listing of mutual recognition agreements (MRAs) on licensing, qualifications and accreditation of professionals and skilled service providers in APEC economies, and provides an overview of some of the key features of MRAs revealed by this project.
The final section of this report makes three recommendations aimed at capitalizing on the potential of the inventory for enhancing awareness and facilitating the future development of mutual recognition arrangements in APEC:
1. Review the Inventory to ensure accuracy and currency
2. Promote the Inventory as a means of raising awareness about existing practice and to facilitate a strategic approach to future development of MRAs
3. Regularly update the Inventory over time
