European Commission opens infringement procedure for breach of Services Directive

European Commission opens infringement procedure for breach of Services Directive

The European Commission opened infringement procedure against 9 member states for maintaining national rules that include excessive and unjustified obstacles to the freedom to provide cross-border services in the EU internal market.

The Commission found that certain service providers faced unjustified restrictions and requirements which were deemed to be contrary to the Services Directive (Directive 2006/123/EC). The November infringement package includes i.e. a reasoned opinion against Belgium for introducing restrictions on accountants. According to the provisions of the Services Directive, member states may not introduce obstacles that hinder the freedom of establishment and cross-border provision of services across the EU.
