European Communities (Recognition of Professional Qualifications) (First General System) Regulations 2005 come into force
Implementation date: 9 February 2005
The Regulations revoke the European Communities (Recognition of Professional Qualifications) Regulations 1991 to include a wider definition of 'regulated profession' in the United Kingdom.

The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
