sorry, there may be absolutely nothing you can do. It depends on the rules of that country regarding registration.

So the legal process here has completed?

There may be a way that you can contact the country abroad and alert them to his conviction, but it may be that the laws of the country/registration as an osteopath there mean his conviction is irrelevant. It's difficult to advise without knowing the country.

While I admire the way your son has responded, it may be worth getting him further help to deal with the way that the legal process concluded. Clearly your son feels like it was inadequate, and it may be that he struggles to come to terms with not being able to do anything else. Talking about it with a therapist could avoid the temptation for outing him online or any type of vigilante action, which although understandable, could get your son into trouble.

You will have to inform the disciplinary body of the other EU state. I would rather suspect that they would be interested as most regulatory bodies would ask about convictions in general ... Why not contact the UK osteopaths body and ask them for assistance?
