The Decree of the recognition and the enrolment in the Register

Within four months of receiving the full documentation, a Decree recognising the professional title obtained abroad is issued. The Decree, which will be issued according to procedures set out in Article 16 of Legislative Decree No 206/2007, will indicate the procedures and contents of the aptitude test.

Enrolment in the Register of Industrial Property Consultants will be carried out by the Industrial Property Consultants Institute, which the interested party must contact for the necessary formalities.

The Decrees for the recognition of professional titles issued by the UIBM are published on the website of the Ministry of Economic Development in the section on ‘Recognition of foreign professional qualifications’; this notice replaces publication of the Decrees in the Official Journal.
