The project builds on the recommendation by the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament. They recommended the member states to “promote cooperation between agencies in order to build up mutual trust and the recognition of quality assurance and accreditation assessments, thus contributing to the recognition of qualifications for the purpose of study or work in another country”. In addition, the implementation of the Information Tool will help to “ensure public access to the assessments made by the quality assurance or accreditation agencies listed in the European Register”.
The European ministers responsible for higher education stated in their Berlin Communiqué of 19 September 2003 that the quality of higher education has proven to be at the heart of the setting up of a European Higher Education Area. The ENIC and NARIC Networks stated in their Strasbourg Statement of 8 June 2004 that the improved recognition of European qualifications is intimately linked to improved and transparent quality assurance and this through cooperation between national systems based on a common understanding of goals, procedures and methods.
