detailed information

Welcome to IHK FOSA!

The IHK Foreign Skills Approval (IHK FOSA) is the national competence centre of the German chambers of industry and commerce for the evaluation and recognition of foreign vocational qualifications. IHK FOSA accepts applications for recognition and examines them in order to determine to what extent the foreign qualifications can be considered equivalent to corresponding German qualifications. The premises of the IHK FOSA are in Nuremberg.
In this way, the IHK FOSA makes a significant contribution towards ensuring a supply of skilled personnel in Germany and to a better integration of migrants into German society.
