The distinction between establishment and services is based on the idea that establishment is more permanent whereas services are more temporary in nature. Establishment mainly falls under Art. 49 with 49(1) allowing for primary and secondary establishment and (2) prohibiting unequal or discriminatory treatment. The law in this area is directly effective as per Reyners . Equivalent qualifications across member states are interpreted broadly as per Heylens  and also Directive 2005/36 Meanwhile article 49(2) has been broadened beyond discrimination to include any unjustified restriction on the freedom of establishment. The main case in this are is Gebhard  that allows for restrictions only if they meet four criteria: 1) Non-discriminatory 2) Justified 3) Needed to secure an objective 4) Don't go beyond what is necessary to achieve that objective A national can rely on Art. 49 with respect to their own member state only when they have exercised the freedom of movement themselves as per Knoors  Article 54 states companies should be treated in the same way as individuals and although company law can vary from state to state the ECJ has placed a lot of focus on achieving the overall objective of freedom of establishment as seen in Centros  and Überseering . However once a company is established in a Member State they are then subject to that country's rules as regards incorporation etc. as per Daily Mail  and Cartesio  The liberalisation provided by Art. 54 means that it can be difficult to crack down on tax avoidance as seen in Cadbury Schweppes . Freedom of services is based on the temporary nature of the work rather than the infrastructure or, as per Commission v Portugal , the period of time. Art. 57 loosely defines services and 58 excludes other services that are covered in other parts of the treaty. Art. 56 also has direct effect as per Van Binsbergen . Similarly there also has to be an inter-state element as seen in Deliège  Also covered is the freedom to receive services; Luisi & Carbone  The service does have to be provided for remuneration and this line can become blurred in relation to certain healthcare systems that are a hybrid between user and government payments Some controversial services such as abortion, gambling and marijuana can still be considered services (Grogan ) but can be subject to national rules that provide a proportional and non-discriminatory restriction (Zenatti ). Taking a broad definition it is even possible that certain social benefits may also fall within the definition; Cowan . Art. 62 allows for restrictions on policy, security and health grounds. Beyond this Van Binsbergen  sets out the conditions for any restriction imposed by a Member State: 1) Pursuit of a legitimate public interest 2) Applied without discrimination 3) Proportionate 4) Respects fundamental rights (Carpenter ) This freedom can be controversial as it allows greater liberalisation in the labour market at the expense of employee rights. This came to a head in Laval  although this judgment has been tempered somewhat by the Rome I Regulation. Restrictions on tax grounds can be allowed to prevent fraud but not for other, broader reasons; Danner . Non-discriminatory restrictions can also be caught if they are a hinderance to the freedom of services (Alpine Investments ) and Gebhard  also applies within this context. The Bolkenstein Directive sought to achieve greater harmonisation by focusing on the country of origin but after protest this was watered down and so only mainly deals with a range of procedural and administrative issues.

Direct effect allows rights under EU law to be enforced within a domestic court system. Vertical direct effect allows rights to be enforced against an emanation of the state while horizontal direct effect allows rights to be enforced against other individuals or against companies. Direct effect is also conditional on the type of EU law that is being enforced. Treaties are a form of primary legislation and have vertical and horizontal direct effect so long as the relevant treaty article matches the conditions set out in Van Gend en Loos (1963): Clear and unconditional Prohibition Not dependent on member state implementation Regulations are directly applicable and as such also have vertical and horizontal direct effect. Directives, in principle, only have vertical direct effect because they are an obligation for member states to implement them. Even then they can only be enforced when they grant rights to individuals (Defrenne v SABENA (No. 2) (1979)) and the time limit for implementation has passed (Pubblico Ministero v Ratti (1979)). However there is a way that directives can have horizontal direct effect and this is known as indirect effect. This works because the courts themselves can be considered as emanations of the state and so in their judgments have to enforce EU law between individuals. This concept first arose in Von Colson v Land Nordrhein-Westfalen (1984) and was applied in the UK through Lister v Forth Dry Dock . An emanation of the state was defined in Foster v British Gas plc  as a body that: Provides a public service Under the control of the state Has special powers beyond those of individuals

The single market is a at the heart of the Brexit debate as access to the market also depends on the free movement of labour. The single market is often taken for granted but required a lot of hard work starting mainly with the Single European Act 1986 that now forms a part of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. Article 26(1) removes the deadline for the single market as this is an ongoing task while 26(2) defines the single market as "an area without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured". To achieve these aims 26(3) describes the Council taking action based on the recommendations and advice of the Commission. Article 27 states that when doing this the Commission will take into account the effort required on the part of national economies and can allow for derogations in certain circumstances. The main power for making legislation comes from Article 114 as Article 115 requires unanimity and only allows for the passing of directives. On the other hand Article 114 makes use of the ordinary legislative procedure and allows for regulations as well as directives. This power is not unlimited as seen in Tobacco Advertising  where the ECJ held that the objective has to be the harmonisation of the internal market but even in Tobacco Advertising  a small change to the original directive showed the broad approach the ECJ would be prepared to take. There are also, however, qualifications within article 114. Article 114(2) state that the procedure cannot apply to fiscal provisions, free movement of people and employment rights. (3) meanwhile states that for health, safety, environmental and consumer protection the base line is a high level of protection based on the latest scientific research. However the most controversial qualification comes from Arts. 114(4)-(9) which potentially allows member states themselves to go against a harmonising measure. This is rarely used though and can only be applied in restricted circumstances. For (4) the concern must relate to environment, working environment or exceptions from art. 36 and only provides for the retention of existing legislation in that state. (5) does allow for new legislation to be passed but must be specific to that MS and based on new scientific evidence. Thus we can see this is not only restrictive within the Article but the checks from the Commission and the judgments of the ECJ will always be towards enforcing the treaty while the burden of proof itself is on the state. Finally Art. 114(10) allows member states to take temporary measures where there is a concern relating to Art.36. In practical terms the EU uses this legislation to develop the single market through various approaches such as mutual recognition and setting standards in certain industries. The single market is an on going process and while it is scrutinised from a political and social standpoint it continues to harmonise things across all member states.

Developing organic production is an EU policy objective. While the EU organic market is constantly expanding, only 6 % of total EU agricultural area is used for organic cultivation, and the difference between EU demand and production is covered by growing imports. To overcome the regulatory obstacles to the development of the sector and increase consumer confidence in the EU organic logo, the Commission adopted a proposal in March 2014 for a regulation on organic production and labelling of organic products, repealing the current framework dating from 2007. Following a series of trilogue meetings, the Maltese Presidency and the European Parliament reached a preliminary agreement on 28 June 2017. The Council's Special Committee on Agriculture endorsed the agreement, which the Parliament's Agriculture Committee subsequently approved on 22 November 2017. The full Parliament and Council now need to approve the text before the new regulation can enter into force.

The new EU copyright law is going to have drastic affects on the freedom and openness of the Internet. Beyond banning memes, Article 13 of the European Copyright Directive 2018 will result in automated surveillance and centralized control of the Internet. The directive makes online platforms liable for the content generated by their users. That means that on top of punitive and vaguely worded terms of services, Internet gate-keepers like Facebook, Google, or Twitter will be required by law to proactively monitor and censor content. These online platforms will be required by law to create automated mechanisms to filter infringing content. Such technology would essentially turn into “upload filters”. These automated filters won’t be recognizing between infringing and legitimate content, like parodies, satire, commentary or other instances of fair use. To balance the flaws of automated upload filters, the directive also requires platforms to build staffed systems for filing complaints for illegitimate takedowns. I make these videos because I believe standing up against power and illegitimate authority is a moral duty. I believe all humans are fundamentally free. But this freedom won't take care of itself.

There are 28 countries forming the European Union as a single market and the entire GDP was more than 15 trillion Euros in 2017. Any shifts in policy can have major impact on markets and technologies. Some clues where the policy is heading were available in early September, when an informal meeting of the EU economic and finance affairs ministers took place in Vienna. The first day’s press release showed a positive attitude towards crypto technology by Austria’s Minister of Finance, Hartwig Löge, who said that the region should be an attractive place for those who wish to invest in cryptocurrency. The release further highlighted economic benefits that Initial Coin Offerings could provide to this region. They can be a valuable tool for European companies to gain access to funding. Growth-promoting regulation should tap this potential for European companies as a serious financing instrument. At the same time, the investment universe will be expanded by high-quality ICOs. Consumers also get access to alternative investment opportunities. The Vice-President of the European Comission, Valdis Dombrovskis, also gave a speech addressing some of the main challenges and benefits for crypto assets in general. The Maltese government looks to be paving the way when it comes to their innovative approach to cryptocurrency and blockchain.

Since 2010 BEREC has supported the EU institutions and the National Regulatory Authorities to deal with net neutrality by investigating it before many others. BEREC was asked by EU legislators to write the net neutrality guidelines. During the consultation process in 2016, around half a million responses were received. These guidelines help the National Regulators to implement the single European net neutrality Regulation in a coherent way as they got the powers and the obligation to assess internet traffic management, commercial practices and agreements; and to effectively enforce the Regulations. It will help National Regulators, consumers and businesses in measuring the performance of Internet access services and for detecting traffic management practices applied to or impacting those services. What is next? BEREC has further ongoing activities in place to support the National Regulators to implement the net neutrality rules and will continue its work in this area diligently

(20 Dec 2017) The European Union's top court has ruled that ride-hailing service Uber should be regulated like a taxi company, a decision that could change the way it functions across the continent. The ruling Wednesday by the Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice stems from a complaint by a Barcelona taxi drivers association. The taxi drivers wanted to prevent Uber from setting up in the Spanish city, and said Uber drivers should have authorisations and licenses. Jakob Kucharczyk, an analyst from the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA), said the ruling would interfere with the EU's goal of establishing a "digital single market", as it paves the way for online companies to be subjected to more national and local rules. San Francisco-based Uber argued that it should be regulated as a technology service and not a transport company, because it is based on an app that connects drivers to riders. The court said in a statement that services like Uber must be classified as "a service in the field of transport." The decision could affect such services around the EU.

ESMA has now submitted the RTS to the European Commission, which has three months in which to approve or reject them. The Regulation, fully coming into force on 1 January 2018, includes provisions ensuring: - the full process of provision of a benchmark is checked by a new oversight function that administrators have to establish - the potential manipulation of benchmarks is minimised, through new rules regarding the methodology of calculation and the contribution of input data - that conflicts of interest of administrators and contributors are properly managed - a level playing field across different Member States for the authorisation and registration of benchmark's administrators Watch this on-demand version of the RIMES BMR Seminar, which will give you the latest briefing, and help you understand the next steps.

The draft European Electronic Communication Code (EECC) aims to adapt end-user protection to the digital era and ensure that telecoms rules focus on the sector’s specific needs. Some stakeholders fear that this regulation is too broad and risks slowing down the fast-developing Internet of Things. Is the definition of services covered by the Code too wide? Does this proposal better protect consumers? EURACTIV organised a workshop to discuss together the future of digital services. Questions included: - How can regulators ensure competition between Internet-based service providers and traditional telecoms companies? - Is the Code achieving its stated goal of better protecting consumers? - Is the European Commission regulating the Internet of Things through the code? Is its approach effective? - How can European law-makers facilitate digital services innovation?

BOOK REVIEW EU REGULATION OF E-COMMERCE A Commentary Edited by Arno R Lodder and Andrew D Murray ISBN: 978 1 78536 933 9 (Book) 978 1 78536 934 6 (ebook) EDWARD ELGAR PUBLISHING Elgar Commentaries This book is available electronically in the Elgaronline Law subject collection DOI 10.4337/9781785369346 www.e-elgar.com www.elgaronline.com __________________________________________________ PRIOR TO BREXIT: A DETAILED EXAMINATION OF CURRENT E-COMMERCE REGULATION WITHIN THE EUROPEAN UNION An appreciation by Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers and Reviews Editor, “The Barrister” As Brexit is still almost two years off, this recent title from Edward Elgar Publishing has attracted considerable interest among lawyers or scholars seeking an enhanced understanding of e-commerce legislation. It presents a compendium of current thinking and commentary from an international team of contributors on, as the title indicates, EU regulation of e-commerce. Having burst upon the international scene in about 1997 or earlier, e-commerce admittedly is no longer a new means of communication, having by now become a key component of global business activity and indispensable in everyday life. This book therefore provides much close analysis of the current regulatory framework of e-commerce within the European Union. It covers a wide range of recent developments in case law and regulation in this now vital area of law, with which all lawyers should now be at least reasonably familiar. We refer here to UK lawyers as well as the international variety, despite, or perhaps even because of, the imminence of Brexit. It’s expected that nothing much will change immediately, but be warned. We shall feel a longer-term impact on e-commerce as Brexit bites. This latest title in Elgar’s “Commentaries” series is therefore very welcome, as editors Arno R Lodder and Andrew D Murray set out to provide a complex and detailed examination of current EU e-commerce regulation via specially commissioned articles from their contributors, all leading scholars and practitioners from across the EU. Murray, for example, is Professor of Law at the London School of Economics, focusing on new media and technology law. Lodder is Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The book contains coverage of the key pieces of EU legislation pertaining to e-commerce, including the E-commerce Directive, the Services Directive, the Consumer Directive, the General Data Protection Regulation, and the eID Regulation. For the convenience of practitioners, the book very sensibly follows the format and time-saving features of the traditional legal text, including tables of cases and legislation, numbered paragraphs throughout, an extended table of contents and a detailed index. The extensive footnoting provides any number of references for keen researchers. This book will certainly serve as a useful addition to the professional library of the legal scholar, as well that of the informed practitioner seeking enriched and insightful analysis into this fast-developing and increasingly complex area of law. The publication date is cited as at 2017.

Cross-border provision of services in the EU is relatively common, and is undertaken by an increasing number of entities, especially in sectors such as construction and business. Despite this fact, many service-providers still face obstacles which stop them benefitting from comparable business opportunities available to local persons and organisations. The European Commission has a proposed a new regulation and accompanying directive aimed at tackling these remaining obstacles in EU markets, through the introduction of a European services e-card. This would increase and simplify cooperation between home and host Member States, as well as simplifying the procedures applicable to cross-border service-providers.

Part of the European Union’s sweeping new privacy regulations could change how people apply for loans, credit cards, and even jobs online. The new law, called the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, goes into effect Friday and gives EU residents new rights and greater control over their information online, even the ability to have it completely erased. But GDPR goes beyond just protecting personal data and could radically affect how people interact with the algorithms that control so much of the internet.

Jean-Luis Colson Christina Vartos - Tzannetakis Ann Devouche, European Commission Members Jean -- Luis explains the function of his unit at the European Commission Maritime Transport division where they deal with training and working conditions of seafarers which includes attending the IMO and drafting regulations for the European Union for negotiation with the EU Member States. Jean -- Luis's associate, Ann Devouche who has been with the unit for six years during which time her main function has been to participate in MLC 2006 negotiations and transposing the same into EU Legislation in order to ensure its efficient enforcement within the EU through Port State Control inspections. Christina Vartos- Tzannetakis, another team member explains that the EU has developed comprehensive legislation that can decide whether or not international standards are applied within the EU Member States. Thus the same application of standards are ensured throughout the EU. In particular Christina makes reference to the upcoming amendments to the STCW 1978 Convention through a diplomatic conference in Manila during June of 2010. European Commission Maritime Transport -- http://ec.europa.eu/transport/maritime/index_en.htm For Europe, maritime transport has been a catalyst of economic development and prosperity throughout its history. Maritime Transport enables trade and contacts between all the European nations. It ensures the security of supply of energy, food and commodities and provides the main vehicle for European imports and exports to the rest of the world. Almost 90% of the EU external freight trade is seaborne. Short sea shipping represents 40% of intra-EU exchanges in terms of ton-kilometers. The quality of life on islands and in peripheral maritime regions depends on good maritime transport services. Each year, more than 400 million passengers embark and disembark in European ports. Overall, maritime industries are an important source of employment and income for the European economy. The European Commission's objective is to protect Europe with very strict safety rules preventing sub-standard shipping, reducing the risk of serious maritime accidents and minimizing the environmental impact maritime transport. The Commission also works actively against piracy and terrorism threats. Another important activity concerns the social dimension, looking after working conditions, health and safety issues and professional qualifications of seafarers. Finally, the Commission works for the protection of citizens as users of maritime transport services, ensuring safe and secure conditions, looking after their rights as passengers and examining the adequacy of the public service maritime transport connections proposed by Member States. The Commission has recently updated its strategic goals and recommendations for the EU Maritime Transport Policy until 2018. Action in the area of maritime transport aims at ensuring the long term performance of the European maritime transport system as a whole to the benefit of all other economic sectors and of the final consumer. The Commission supports actively the efforts of the EU Member States and of the European shipping sector offering quality shipping services in Europe and all over the world.

Why should U.S. financial services firms be interested in the new European Union performance benchmarking regulation? Joe Kavanagh, CFA and head of performance measurement and risk analysis at KBI global investors, has a few answers for you. “A bunch of people out there are asking, ‘Why are we interested in this?’ ” Kavanagh says. “Well, it’s very clear actually. Many U.S. firms sell products into Europe. They have clients in Europe. They make publicly available their investment performance against benchmarks. If they do so, guess what? They are covered by this regulation. Period.” Kavanagh spoke with FTF News during a break at FTF’s Performance Measurement Americas conference in last month. He was a panelist for the session, “Get Ready for the EU’s Benchmarks Regulation.” As he explains in a recent Bull Run post http://bit.ly/2ooe4Wl , the new regulation covers administrators, contributors and users. “Benchmark administrators will have to go through an approval process over the next couple of years for their benchmarks with the European regulator. From 1 January 2020 the regulations become fully effective and investment firms from that date must not use unregulated benchmarks in the E.U.,” Kavanagh says. “Within the interim two-year timeframe investment firms may continue to use these benchmarks in publicly available materials until they become aware that these benchmarks have not been approved,” Kavanagh adds. “The regulations require that investment firms now draw up an inventory of benchmarks they use, determine an alternative benchmark if the preferred benchmark is no longer available, either because they fail the approval process or are withdrawn from the market, and have robust written plans for cessation or material changes of a benchmark, and to reflect them in the contractual relationship with clients.” There are punishments for non-compliance. “The sanctions are varied. Certainly at the top end of the scale, it would bring a tear to your eye,” Kavanagh says. “The monetary fines go as high as 1 million euros, which is approximately $1.25 million, or 10 percent of the annual turnover [revenue] of the firm. … But what’s little known, perhaps, is that the U.S. firm that breaches this regulation may be a subsidiary firm … So, 10 percent of revenue is 10 percent of the parent company revenue and that is obviously quite a substantial sum of money.” Kavanagh has managed the performance measurement department of KBI since 2000. KBI is an institutional investment management firm based in Dublin, Ireland. CREDITS: Video Production: Janene Knox and William J.
