UEAPME issued its position on the proposal to introduce a Services Passport. According to UEAPME, the goal of the Services Passport should be to give services providers legal certainty and clarity about the rules they have to comply with when they want to operate in another Member State and simplify administrative procedures. It should not cause any extra additional administrative burden for companies, but rather decrease the existing burdens. The Member States’ authorities should continue to have the competence to oversee and tackle irregularities and informal economy and tax fraud as well to ensure high-quality skills requirements and standards for health and safety at work. UEAPME have severe concerns concerning the principle that the passport will be delivered by the authorities of the country of origin. A European services passport should not override national based high-level skills requirements and standards for health and safety at work or tax control related rules.
