Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRA) on Tourism Professionals aims to facilitate mobility of tourism professionals within ASEAN based on a competency-based certification system. Through the support of the ASEAN Tourism Professionals Monitoring Committee, an ASEAN Tourism Professionals Registration System (ATPRS) was launched on 19 July 2016. ATPRS is a web based- based job-matching platform that aims to connect hotel and tourism industry with qualified ASEAN Tourism Professionals across ASEAN. More than 6,000 ATPs are expected to register in the first year of MRA implementation, with numbers expected to continuously increase in following years in line with the increased awareness about this arrangement. The ATPRS will be continuously developed to answer the needs of the industry. The system will be managed and maintained by a Regional Secretariat based in Jakarta.
