If the profession is not on the list of regulated professionals, you have free access to the labour market. A credential evaluation may be useful for you, in which case you should contact the Information Centre for Credential Evaluation (IcDW) in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands. A credential evaluation is a written statement which indicates how foreign diplomas and study programmes are valued in the Netherlands. Sometimes, it is possible to make a specific comparison with Dutch educational programmes. Sometimes only a general comparison can be made because there are too many differences between the educational programmes. Regulated professions may only be practised with the permission of a competent authority (see Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs). Access is regulated by law. A competent authority has been designated for each regulated profession. The authority decides whether you may practise the profession concerned in the Netherlands. Examples of regulated professions are those of nurse, teacher and driving instructor. The number and type of regulated professions differ by country (see: source of information)---
