Do the Services Directive apply to my company?

The European Service Directive (2006/123/EG) were dismissed in December 2006. The goal was to remove the existing bureaucratic hurdles, which existed between the EU countries; to ease entry into the service market for all countries; and to advocate services between bordering countries. An important tool, for supporting people who provide services within the domestic and foreign sector, is called “Point of Single Contact" according to the Services Directive.

A person providing a service can with ease inform himself or herself electronically about the accreditation laws of the EU-countries. This can be done from a distance and enables you to apply for an approval and receive it promptly.
