Description of the Online Subject - EU Services Directive (European Single Market):

The crucial EU Services Directive came into force on December 2006. All the EU member countries had to transpose it into their national law before 2009: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom (BREXIT), Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, the Czech Republic, Romania and Sweden (Europe).

This EU Services Directive applies to all those services that are provided in return for an economic remuneration.

However, there are still many Barriers to Trade in Services in the European Union.

The EU estimates that if this directive were fully implemented, intra-EU trade in services could increase by 45% and Foreign direct investment (FDI) would increase by 25%. All this would imply an economic growth between 0.5 and 1.5% of the EU's GDP.

The EU Services Directive aims to remove all barriers to free provision of services in the EU single market through:

  1. Simplification of all administrative procedures related to companies providing services
  2. Companies and consumers protection who benefit from these services
  3. Cooperation between the European Single Market Countries

The EU Services Directive requires to all member countries to repeal all discriminatory and restrictive requirements (such as economic needs tests related to the existence of a demand for services) of their legislation.
