Mutual Recognition Agreements
A Mutual Recognition Agreement or MRA is an international agreement by which two or more non-governmental organizations recognize one another’s professional qualifications and standards. In the case of athletic training and therapy, it is for the purpose of determining the rights, roles and responsibilities of the organizations in the mutual recognition of certificants for the purpose of satisfying the eligibility requirement to write the examination(s) of another. Eligibility to write each organization’s certifying examination does not in any way; ensure employment or licensure of an individual who is successful on said exam. It is not reciprocity; the granting of privileges to practise.
