Implementation in Europe

Method of implementationof the E.U. Services Directive

The following is an examination of method of implementation regarding the European Union Servicies Directive [1]: the implementation of the Services Directive will require Member States to take a combination of legislative and non-legislative, i.e. organisational or practical, measures. The Directive is a horizontal instrument which covers a broad range of different services and which is likely to affect a significant number of national laws and regulations. For this reason, and as far as implementing legislation is concerned, Member States will need to consider a mix of specific and horizontal legislative measures, which are likely to include the amendment of existing laws, as well as the adoption of new specific legislation and of a horizontal “framework” implementation law.
