Date of issue guidance by the General Dental Council: February 2009

General Dental Council (GDC) guidance on European Parliament Directive 2004/38/EC and EC Rights
(A list of EEA Member States is attached as annexe A)

Introduction Please note that this guidance sheet does not constitute legal advice. Should you have any questions about your rights under EC law, you are strongly advised to consult an appropriately qualified lawyer. The GDC cannot provide such advice. EU Directive 2004/38/EC was implemented on 30 April 2006 and is effective from that date. 1. What are the main principles of EU Directive 2004/38/EC? It is a single, transparent instrument establishing conditions governing the right of EU citizens and their family members to freely move and reside within the territory of the Member States. This directive applies to all EU Citizens who move to or reside in a Member State other than that of which they are a national and to their family members. EU citizens have the right to free movement and residence within the territory of the Member States. However, this right is also granted to their family members. This directive requires that family members of EU citizens are treated as EU citizens. The specific rights of family members are: Article 24: right of family members to equal treatment as Member State nationals providing they have the right of residence or permanent residence under Article 7.2. Article 23: right of family members to take up employment or self-employment, providing they have the right of residence or permanent residence.

2. Exempt Persons and Enforceable Community Rights 2.1 I am a non-EEA national - am I an "exempt person"? In order to apply for registration under section 15(4) and 16(2A) or (2B) of the Dentists Act 1984, you will have to demonstrate that you qualify as an "exempt person". There are different ways an applicant may qualify as an exempt person. These are: 1. Nationals of EEA states (other than UK nationals) and Swiss nationals; 2. UK nationals with enforceable Community rights by virtue of having resided in another relevant European state as a worker, self employed person, student or self-sufficient person or (in the case of an EEA state) pursuant to the three month right to reside under Directive 2004/38/EC; 3. Those who are not nationals of an EEA state or Switzerland and who are: a) the spouse/civil partner registered under the law of an EEA state of: i. a non-UK EEA national in the UK as a worker, self-employed person, or self-sufficient person, or pursuant to the three month right Date of issue guidance by the General Dental Council: February 2009

to reside under Directive 2004/38/EC; ii. a UK national having resided in another relevant European state as a worker, self-employed person, or self sufficient person, or (in the case of an EEA state) pursuant to the three month right to reside under Directive 2004/38/EC; b) the descendant aged under 21 years, dependent descendant or dependent relative in the ascending line of an EEA national as defined in (a) (i)-(ii) above, or of their spouse or civil partner or the extended family member of such a person having been given the right to reside in the UK; c) the spouse, civil partner of an EEA national in the UK as a student for more than three months or a UK national having studied for more than three months in another relevant European State, or the dependent child of such an EEA or UK national or their spouse or partner; d) a person previously falling into one of the categories in (a)-(c) above who has retained their Community rights following the death or departure of the EEA national from the UK or following divorce, annulment of marriage or termination of the civil partnership, under the conditions described in Articles 12 - 13 of Directive 2004/38/EC; e) the spouse, child under 21 or dependent child of a Swiss national in the UK as an employed worker, a self employed person, a student or self sufficient person. Rights conferred by this Directive do not extend to a substantive right to have professional qualifications recognised. If you are entitled to be treated as an exempt person in the UK, you are NOT entitled to automatic recognition of your qualifications. 2.2 I am a UK national or a family member of a UK national - how do I demonstrate that I have enforceable Community rights? For UK nationals, or family members of a UK national who wish to apply for registration via enforceable Community rights, the following evidence is required from you, your spouse or family member as appropriate, to prove "exempt person" status: 1. A registration certificate or residence card issued by another EEA state, or a Swiss residence permit proving residence in that relevant EEA state for at least three consecutive months; or 2. Evidence of at least three consecutive months of employment, self-employment, study, selfsufficient residence in another relevant European state. For documentation confirming your residential status in another EEA member state, it is your responsibility to obtain information from the appropriate bodies in that Member State. 3. I am a UK citizen married to a UK citizen - why am I not an exempt person? The definition of an "exempt person" in the Dentists Act 1984 specifically excludes UK citizens except where they are seeking access to or pursuing the profession of dentistry by virtue of an enforceable Community right. You can not derive the right to be treated as an exempt person in the UK from your relationship to a UK national because: a) Article 3 of directive 2004/38/EC states that the directive shall only apply to those European Union citizens who move to or reside in a Member State other than that which they are a national, and to their family members who accompany or join them. Date of issue guidance by the General Dental Council: February 2009

b) When a UK national remains in the UK he/she is not moving within the EU in order to exercise his/her right of free movement and residence. 4. What are the consequences in the UK for the treatment of family members' professional qualifications? a) The family member of an EEA national or UK national with enforceable Community rights who is a third country national i.e. a non-EEA national, accompanying another Member State national who is living in the UK: i) who has qualifications from the UK, will have a right to equal treatment under Article 24 of Directive 2004/38. However, irrespective of this directive, all individuals with a recognised dental qualification from the UK are eligible for registration in the UK irrespective of nationality. ii) who has qualifications from a Member State other than the UK, by virtue of Article 24 of 2004/38 is entitled to be treated equivalently to a national of the UK with another Member State's qualifications. iii) who has qualifications from a third country i.e. a non-EEA country, has the right to have those qualifications to be treated equivalently to a national of the UK with a third country qualifications. b) A family member who is another Member State national, but has qualifications from a third country, will fall within the EU recognition directives listed in annexe A. c) A family member who is a third country national i.e. a non-EEA national, accompanying an exempt person or UK national with enforceable community rights does not acquire rights via Directive 2004/38 unless the UK national can provide evidence of at least three consecutive months of employment, self-employment, study, or self-sufficient residence in another relevant European state. 5. What documentary evidence is required to prove that the applicant for registration with the GDC is the family member of an EEA national? If a non- EEA national applied for registration with the GDC and believe that they are entitled to equal treatment as an exempt person, they must provide the following documents to the GDC to prove their entitlement: Certified copy of applicant's valid passport; Certified copy of the passport of the EEA national who the applicant is a family member of; A certified copy of the visa, EEA family permit or EEA family residence card issued by the relevant EEA Member State, showing that they are the family member of an EEA national, and have the right to residence/proving residence in that relevant EEA state for at least three consecutive months; If applicable, evidence of at least three consecutive months of employment, selfemployment, study or self-sufficient residence in another relevant European state; An original signed and dated letter from the EEA national from whom the applicant derives their rights stating that he/she is moving to work or reside in the UK and that the applicant is joining them.
