The Europass initiative was established by the Decision 2241/2004/EC of the European Parliament and the Council in 2004 . Its aim is to make a person's skills and qualifications clearly understood throughout Europe.​

Following the adoption of the revised Europass Decision of the European Parliament and Council in May 2018 a new Europass is in development.​

The New Europass platform will be a secure, accessible and user-friendly platform that carries a set of web-based tools and information to support individuals in managing the different stages of their career and learning.

​This online platform is being developed by the European Commission in regular consultation with the Europass advisory group and other key stakeholders.

The new Europass will include:

• the Europass e-Portfolio: an online tool for users to describe their skills, find interesting job and   learning opportunities, to manage their applications, and create CVs and cover letters
• Information Provision on working and studying in different EU countries
• Digitally-signed credentials: free tools and software for institutions to issue digital, tamper-proof qualifications and other learning credentials
​• Interoperability: Europass can connect with employment and learning services to allow users connect and        make applications.
