Since the establishment of the European Union (EU),the main problem of the citizens have been very strict requirements for practicing in certain scientific fields in the member states where the right to employment seeks to be realized, which means that freedom of movement of people and services has been restricted unless certain

legal provisions prescribed in the member state in which the rights are to be exercised (host country) are fulfilled and satisfied. A major step forward in facilitating the movement of labor force, and thus the use of their knowledge and services, was made with the adoption of Directive 2005/36 / EC and its modernization of Directives 2013/55 / ​​EU. These documents regulate access to the labor markets of other member states where EU citizens pursue regulated professions in EU countries. Each state reserves the right to draw up its own list of regulated professions, while these directives bring together seven professions regulated in all member states, which are: doctors, nurses, dentists, veterinarians, midwives, pharmacists and architects.

These documents establish, primarily, a system of recognition of regulated professions in the European Union, which, under certain conditions, extends to other countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.

Given that Bosnia and Herzegovina has a growing tendency to open a larger labor market and open and develop the competitiveness of its market, regulating the recognition of regulated professions is one of the most important issues to be addressed by the competent institutions in the coming period.
