COUNCIL DIRECTIVE of 14 December 1981 supplementing Directives 75/362/EEC, 77/452/EEC, 78/686/EEC and 78/1026/EEC concerning the mutual recognition of diplomas, certificates and other evidence of the formal qualifications of doctors, nurses responsible for general care, dental practitioners and veterinary surgeons respectively, with regard to acquired rights (81/1057/EEC)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Articles 49, 57 and 66 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Whereas in Directives 75/362/EEC (4), 77/452/EEC (5), 78/686/EEC (6) and 78/1026/EEC (7) concerning the mutual recognition of diplomas, certificates and other evidence of the formal qualifications of doctors, nurses responsible for general care, dental practitioners and veterinary surgeons respectively, and including measures to facilitate the effective exercise of the right of establishment and freedom to provide services, the provisions relating to acquired rights refer to diplomas, certificates and other evidence of formal qualifications of doctors, nurses responsible for general care, dental practitioners and veterinary surgeons issued by the Member States before the implementation of the said Directives;

Whereas these provisions therefore do not expressly cover the diplomas, certificates and other evidence of formal qualifications which are evidence of training not meeting the minimum training requirements provided for in Directives 75/363/EEC (8), 77/453/EEC (9), 78/687/EEC (10) and 78/1027/EEC (11) which was completed after the implementation of the said Directives, but which had commenced before their implementation;

Whereas it is advisable to make good this omission,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
