The Services Package contains four parts:
- The European Services E-card that is supposed to provide an electronic procedure that may ease the administrative burden for providers of business services and construction services, who want to provide services cross-border in the single market. The response of the confederation of Swedish Enterprise to the Commission consultation on the services e-card (formerly services passport) is available here
- The second initiative is a proportionality test for regulated professions. The Commission proposes a streamlining and clarification of the rules with this proportionality test.
- Thirdly, a communication on how Member States may proceed in order to reform and reduce the number of regulated professions has also been put forward.
- The last part of the package is a proposal for an improved notification procedure for Member States concerning national rules that impact on the free movement of services.
