UK NARIC is the official agency in the United Kingdom for the recognition of international qualifications and skills. It has performed this role since 1997 and derives its authority from the Lisbon recognition convention which came into effect in that year.
This convention obliges the signatory nations to make arrangements for recognising qualifications across borders – including the establishment of a national agency for recognition. UK NARIC fulfils this function for the United Kingdom, on behalf of the UK Government, and ensures the UK meets its international obligations.
More information about the Lisbon Recognition Convention is available on the ENIC-NARIC website.
