Specific Providers in Europe

Requirements reserving the provision of certain services to specific providers in relation to the E.U. Services Directive

The following is an examination of requirements reserving the provision of certain services to specific providers regarding the European Union Servicies Directive [1]:

Requirements reserving the provision of certain services to specific providers: Requirements subject to evaluation

Article 15(2)(d) relates to rules that reserve the right to provide certain services to particular providers only. However, reserve of activities linked to professional qualifications for regulated professions pursuant to Directive 2005/36/EC or provided for in other Community instruments are not covered by Article 15. For example, since requirements reserving the provision of legal advice, in certain Member States, are linked to a professional qualification they are not dealt with by Article 15(2)(d). Yet it is clear that such requirements in any case have to comply with other Community law, in particular Articles 43 and 49 of the EC Treaty.
