There are a number of policies and directives produced by the European Union and Commission which have a direct or an indirect influence on EuroPsy.
These are mainly concerned with mobility and recognition of qualifications.
With the creation of the European Higher Education Area in 2010 and the growing influence of the Bologna Agreement, activities such as Quality Assurance are becoming convergent across European countries as countries share good practice and develop frameworks at the European level.
The European qualifications directives aim to facilitate mobility.
Transparency and recognition and comparability of qualifications are also enhanced by the EQF - European Qualifications Framework.
The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a translation tool that helps communication and comparison between qualifications systems in Europe. Its eight common European reference levels are described in terms of learning outcomes: knowledge, skills and competences. This allows any national qualifications systems, national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) and qualifications in Europe to relate to the EQF levels. Learners, graduates, providers and employers can use these levels to understand and compare qualifications awarded in different countries and by different education and training systems
