The objective of the planned ECVET is to create a European device which will facilitate the transfer, validation and recognition of learning outcomes acquired by individuals moving from one learning context to another or from one qualification system to another, in particular during a mobility period, and who wish to obtain a qualification. ECVET will be used on a voluntary basis.

The Commission is consulting all the countries participating in the Education and Training 2010 work programme, the European Social Partners, the relevant European associations, NGOs and networks, European sectoral bodies etc. The responses will be taken into account in establishing the final content and technical specifications of ECVET.

The consultation will close at the end of March 2007.
