To achieve maximum reusability of personal data and increase the acceptance and visibility of Europass documents, Europass provides a public set of web services. These services offer conversion methods between various file formats supported by Europass. Europass encourages integration with systems and environments that maintain a repository of personal data such as:

  • job matching services (e.g. job portals, employment services);
  • promotion services (e.g. career guidance, human resource management);
  • profile maintaining services (e.g. blog publishing tools, social networking sites).
Supported file formats are: Europass XML, Adobe PDF with Europass XML attachment, Europass JSON, Microsoft Word 97-2003, OpenDocument v2 Text, HTML, HR-XML, Adobe PDF with HR-XML attachment.

Europass provides three types of web services, a RESTful web API, a legacy SOAP-based web API and a way to populate the Online Editors with data coming from a remote system, which we simply call Remote Upload. Further details for each type of services can be found in the sections below:
