MRA Toolkit

APEC has developed a new resource – the Mutual Recognition Agreements Toolkit – to provide practical guidance on the key issues and steps involved in developing mutual recognition arrangements (MRAs) of professional qualifications across the APEC region.


The Toolkit forms part of a broader APEC initiative of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, supported by The Australian APEC Study Centre, to facilitate the mobility of professionals by increasing the knowledge and utilisation of MRAs across APEC economies.


Designed for the benefit of practitioners and officials working towards mutual recognition, the Toolkit provides best practical examples of how to create and implement MRAs, how opportunities for mutual recognition have been realised and how barriers have been overcome to help make MRA-making and implementation in APEC more efficient and effective.
