European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao officially replied to our Academy & Association, and, certified by official email reply, and, testified SCAE is not an "Officially Recognised" body by EU.
Dear Mr Yuen,
Thank you for your enquiry and apologies for the delay in responding.
SCAE is not "officially" "recognised" by the European Union. Nor do they claim to be, from what I see in their website. SCAE is a sector-specific association/lobbying agency (there are hundreds of the sort in Europe, representing many sectors across the economy) . SCAE may interact with the European Union institution, but that does not mean it is "officially recognised".
By the same token, in my understanding the SCAE diplomas are not "officially recognized by EU Authority as a formal educational system and officially accepted and certified/recognized by EU members’ Universities and educational ministries".
All of the above is in no way a negative judgment passed on SCAE, its activities and its diplomas.
I hope this is useful to your purposes
