(Case C-675/17)

Language of the case: Italian

Referring court

Consiglio di Stato

Parties to the main proceedings

Appellant: Ministero della Salute

Respondent: Hannes Preindl

Questions referred

1.    Do Articles 21, 22 and 24 of the Directive 1 require a Member State, in which the full-time training requirement is in force, and the corresponding ban on enrolling in two degree courses at the same time, automatically to recognise qualifications obtained in the home Member State simultaneously or during periods that in part overlap.

2.    If so, can Article 22(a) and Article 21 of the Directive be interpreted to the effect that the authorities in the Member State from which recognition is sought may nevertheless ascertain whether the condition that the overall duration, level and quality of such training should not be lower than those of continuous full-time training is satisfied.


1     Directive 2005/36/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 September 2005 on the recognition of professional qualifications (OJ L 255, p. 22).
