EEA EFTA Comment addressing the European Commission’s preparatory work on a legal proposal aimed at improving the notification procedure for national legislation pursuant to Articles 15(7) and 39(5) of the Services Directive.
In its Communication “Upgrading the Single Market: more opportunities for people and business” (COM(2015) 550 final), the European Commission has announced that it "will present a legislative proposal modelled on the successful features of the notification procedure under Directive (EU) 2015/1535 for services currently not covered by that Directive”. The reason for this is that the present notification procedure under the Services Directive does not function as intended.
For services falling under the scope of the Services Directive, there are few or no harmonising rules at EU (EEA) level, unlike in the goods area, where an effective notification procedure is already in place.
Therefore, to enhance the Internal Market for Services, the EEA EFTA States are of the opinion that the present notification procedures under the Services Directive should be improved.
