The SPNL certificates may be submitted as qualifications for recruitment, public examinations and contests for transfers within the UPV and in many public administrations in the Catalan-speaking area.
Valencian universities are part of the Inter-university Committee for the Standardization of Credentials of Knowledge of Valencian (CIEACOVA), which was born in September 2015 after these universities agreed to recognize the certificates of Valencian issued by their respective language offices. These universities also recognize the certificates issued by the Government of Catalonia, the Government of the Balearic Islands and the Valencian Government.
According to the Order 7/2017, of the Ministry of Education, Research, Culture and Sport, certificates of knowledge of Valencian issued by UPV are equivalent to those issued by the JQCV (as detailed in Annex II of that order). Therefore, the UPV certificates do not require any validation.
