Are the quotas EU-8 stated for B residence permits or B working permits?

Hello everybody,

I just got my B residencepermit as EU-8 valid till 2018. As looking for a job here, will there be anyrestrictions for quotas in case I get a work contract?

As I picked up my permittoday, I asked this question to the guy handling me over the documents whoanswered "No, No, No limitations, with a job contract you willautomatically get a work permit (L for contract shorter than one year, B forcontracts over one year)

Are the quotas EU-8 statedfor B residence permits or B working permits?

"EU-8 Member States(Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic,and Hungary). From 1 May 2012, category B residence permits granted to citizensof these countries will be subject to quotas."(

Should I consider my Bresidence permit as B work permit anytime a potential employer asks?

Many thanks
