The so-called Enforcement Directive on Posted Workers (2014/67/EU) is intended to strengthen the implementation and enforcement of the Posting of Workers Directive (96/71/EC). The Enforcement Directive requires Member States to verify compliance with the rules on posting of workers, addresses 'letter-box' companies that use posting to circumvent the law, and aims to increase awareness among posted workers and companies about their rights and obligations.
In addition to adopted decisions incorporating EU legislation into the EEA Agreement, the Joint Committee took note of the recent EEA EFTA Comments: one concerning contracts for the sales of goods, and one concerning Erasmus, the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. The meeting schedule for the first half of 2019 was also approved by the Joint Committee.
The EEA EFTA Chair, Ambassador Oda Helen Sletnes also took the opportunity to introduce and welcome the Ambassador of Iceland to the EU, Mr Gunnar Pálsson, to his first EEA Joint Committee meeting.
