The following is an examination of follow-up measures regarding the European Union Servicies Directive [1]:

Follow-up measures: Method of implementation

The Services Directive also requires Member States to take measures beyond the December 2009 implementation deadline. This is notably the case in connection with the review of legislation and mutual assessment process set out in Article 39 of the Directive. For instance, on the basis of Article 39(5) Member States have an ongoing obligation to notify changes in requirements applicable to the cross-border provision of services (a similar obligation exists as regards certain establishment related requirements on the basis of Article 15(7)). Member States also have, on the basis of Article 39(2), an obligation to participate in the mutual evaluation process which will follow the review and reporting of legislation. Finally, it is equally clear that the development of a policy on quality of services, as foreseen in the Chapter V of the Directive, will evolve over the years.
