Update on NARIC/ENIC for CIOL Members


Following the UK’s departure from the European Union, UK NARIC has changed from a NARIC (which is an EU-only title) to an ENIC (the wider European title for national recognition agencies) in order to meet the UK's continuing treaty obligations under the Lisbon Recognition Convention. Therefore, since 1 March 2021, UK NARIC has become UK ENIC, managed by ECCTIS Limited.

Behind the change of status, the team remains the same, and of course they remain dedicated to high levels of service and continuing their support to stakeholders like CIOL and to the wider UK education and qualifications sector.

Since 1 March 2021, UK ENIC services have been provided on a new website. Other services like their international services and their full range of training and development offers will be promoted and delivered via their corporate website. Further corresponding changes to our social media channels will also take place accordingly.

All organisations like CIOL that are members of UK NARIC will automatically become members of UK ENIC and there has been and will be no interruption to services.  Users of our services will be able to login to use our services on either the UK ENIC or ECCTIS websites using their existing login details.

CIOL members and candidates who hold international qualifications from outside the UK can access the UK ENIC Statement of Comparability service here.
