Allocation procedure

The allocation of formal qualifications, i.e. those qualifications regulated by the government at federal or state level, takes place on the basis of consensus in the DQR Working Group and the Federal Government-Federal State Coordination Point. The allocation procedure is described in the DQR handbook. The institution responsible for the legal regulation upon which the qualification is based, provides an allocation proposal to the Federal Government-Federal State Coordination Point. The B-L-KS checks the proposal involving the DQR Working Group in order to ensure the overall coherence of allocations.

Criteria and a procedure for the allocation of non formal qualifications, i.e. qualifications which are not regulated by the state - are currently being developed and tested. Therefore, allocations of non formal qualifications are not yet possible.
