Expert Validation Committee


The Expert Validation Committee (EVC) was established in March 2008 to process applications from psychologists who qualified overseas and wish to take up employment within the Irish public service.

Previously applications for validation were reviewed by the MQRC but, as the number of such applications significantly increased in recent years, a separate committee was required to undertake this work. The EVC will maintain ongoing links with the MQRC.

The EVC reviews applications for validation of qualifications on behalf of the Department of Health and Children.

The EVC is chaired by Terri Morrissey, the Society’s CEO and includes representatives from Clinical, Counselling, Educational and Health academic training courses, practitioners and Divisions. In addition to processing applications the committee plans to review the applications forms and procedures.
