In March 2011, the Federal Government published a draft bill for a law to improve the assessment and recognition of foreign vocational and professional qualifications.

This draft bill is currently being debated in the Bundesrat (the legislative body that represents the federal states) and in the Bundestag. The so-called "Recognition Act" will make it considerably easier for immigrants and Germans who have learned an occupation abroad to exercise employment appropriate to their qualifications in Germany.
