On 2 May 2016, the European Commission published a public consultation on the proposal to introduce a services passport and address regulatory barriers in the construction and business services sectors, and on possible action to address barriers in the insurance sector.
This consultation stems from the Single Market Strategy which announced several actions to further develop the Single Market for services such as an initiative introducing a Services Passport for key economic sectors, an action to address regulatory barriers for key business services and for construction services and an action on professional indemnity insurance requirements for business and construction service providers.
The aim of this consultation is to seek the views of stakeholders on the effect on the ground of these administrative and regulatory obstacles, as well as on different policy options that could be pursued to address them, including their potential impact.
The consultation is open until 27 July 2016.
