Department of An Taoiseach
142. To ask the Taoiseach if his Department is in full compliance with the Commission Recommendation (EU) 2022/554 of 5 April 2022 on the recognition of qualifications for people fleeing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine; if he will set out a list of the professional qualifications or professions recognised under the aegis of his Department; if Ukrainian qualifications are now recognised in each case; if electronic applications can be made for such recognition; the web address or email address to which such applications should be sent, or if physical application is necessary; and the exact procedures and address for such applications. [29974/22]
Recruitment to my Department and to the National Economic and Social Development Office (NESDO), the only body under the aegis of my Department, is mainly undertaken through the Public Appointments Service both at graduate and non-graduate level.
Where necessary, the Public Appointments Service uses the NARIC foreign qualifications comparability service provided by Quality and Qualifications Ireland. The NARIC website has information in Ukrainian about its academic qualifications recognition service which can be accessed here: www.qqi.ie/sites/default/files/2022-03/naric-guide-ukraine.pdf.
