The competent authorities of a host Member State are required, under Article 3 of Council Directive 89/48/EEC of 21 December 1988 on a general system for the recognition of higher-education diplomas awarded on completion of professional education and training of at least three years' duration, to permit a national of a Member State who holds a diploma within the meaning of that directive issued by a competent authority of another Member State to pursue his profession on the same conditions as apply to holders of national diplomas even though that diploma:

attests to education and training received, in whole or in part, at an establishment located in the host Member State which, according to the legislation of that State, is not recognised as an educational establishment, and

has not been homologated by the competent national authorities.
