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.

As part of its ‘new deal for consumers’, in April 2018, the Commission proposed a new directive on modernisation of EU consumer protection rules. The directive would amend four of seven main horizontal directives that make the core of the EU consumer legislation and that apply to all sectors of economy and would focus on harmonising penalties for infringements and possibilities for individual consumer redress, increasing transparency on online marketplaces, extending protection for consumers of ‘free’ digital services and addressing the issue of dual quality of products.

At the end of March, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published its final report containing the draft regulatory and implementing technical standards (RTS/ITS) under the new Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) aimed at ensuring the accuracy and integrity of benchmarks across the European Union. 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.

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

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. Three new bills are set to be passed, Including the Innovative Technology Arrangements and Service David Pulis, Executive Director of ZBX, joins the show to discuss EU Cryptocurrency Regulations. __ Thank You For Watching This Video! 🎞 SUBSCRIBE to our channel for daily Breaking News in Crypto here -- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuDgA_9Qxl4DONETl-UfM3Q __ 🔹 Welcome to BloxLive.TV, the world's first crypto and blockchain news network streaming around the clock.

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

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.

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. If you too believe this cause and want to help in this pursuit, you can donate to any of my cryptocurrency wallets.

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.

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.

(21 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.

The long-and-short of it is, as well known in Austrian Economics, in order to regulate financial services you would need perfect knowledge of the market - impossible, it cant be done. It's sometimes known as the 'fatal conceipt'. What we need to go back to is 'liberty of contract', so the individual, the investor can contract, under law in a property-owning democracy, with whomsoever banker or investment manager he wants without interference of the state and the implicit guarantee of the taxpayer that goes with it. Central bankers and retail bankers hide behind regulation. They are not dominated or guided by regulation! It's what keeps these people out of prison when they cheat the general public, and ytou are part of the conspiracy. Move away from prescriptive regulation, for goodness sake, and let the law of the land take its course. .................... • Video: EbS (European Parliament) .................................. • EU Member States: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, United Kingdom

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.

http://www.globalchange.com What is ethical leadership? Leadership ethics and integrity in public life. How do we encourage leadership integrity and fight corruption in leaders? At this session and afterwards, many participants confessed that they had been under significant pressure by bosses to do major things that they thought were unethical. Keynote conference speaker Patrick Dixon -- lecture at European Commission. Why leadership has to be based on trust, not just position, appealing to heart as well as to mind. Importance of the European Commission and trans-national regulation. Trust crisis in banking and financial services as well as in politicians, governments and the European Union. How to restore trust and public confidence in political process, parties, elections and democracy itself. How trust can be lost instantly in media, web, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and other social media -- eg dioxin food contamination scandal -- Belgium and impact on Italy, and failure of agricultural ministers to win media debate. Leadership must connect with passion: things we feel strongly about, that really matter, that make a big difference. Eg debate on ethics of food-linked biofuels and burning food in vehicles, impact on global food prices, food riots, international security, connecting oil, food and land prices. Researching my book The Truth about Westminster and UK political system, and how political system can compromise integrity. Tension between civil servants and government ministers -- secret confessions. Lack of integrity, dishonesty of many political campaigns with rare reversals of legislation after winning power: truth that in many EU nations most politicians agree on most things. Death of left wing and right wing divides and rise of single issue campaigns / pressure groups / activists. Compliance with EU regulation only part of story -- cannot protect corporation brand or media image against media attack if regulations seen to be in need of updating. Example: bribes were totally legal in some EU nations until recently -- tax deductible expenses. Now bribery is outlawed, no defence to say that bribes paid in the past were ethical because legal and compliant with auditing regulations at the time. So Ethical Leadership must go far beyond current laws to what we believe is morally right, not hiding behind what is permitted. Core ethic: building a better world. Basis of every effective leadership speech and leadership stye. Hitler, Stalin, Roosevelt, JF Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill - the ultimate leadership speech. Even evil leaders appeal to "better world" ethics in their rhetoric with an audience. Trust means demonstrating that we are willing to put what is right ahead of self-interest. Dangers in European Commission due to size, power, golden handcuffs and difficulty in moving to careers outside commission. Organisations that people cannot easily leave are usually corrupt -- history shows -- because power is harder to defy, fear, intimidation. Why true leadership never comes from position alone: elections for President of the World? Nelson Mandela usually nominated first. He has no office or official status yet is universally respected as a moral authority. People who cannot be owned, bought or controlled, who are driven by high moral principles are usually greatly respected, even feared. Example negotiating better work-life balance with reluctant workaholic boss. Breaking free from economic slavery. Need to be prepared to leave an organisation to be a free spirit, otherwise constant risk of compromise. Developing an exit strategy as part of retaining own freedom to act against lack of integrity.Astonishing audience question: "In your experience have you EVER come across an organisation that you think is ethical" (!)Personal story of standing up to being bullied at work to do unethical things, and standing ground.We did anonymous electronic polling during this presentation which showed significant pressures within the senior levels of the European Commission to act in unethical ways on major as well as minor decisions, and that it is difficult for senior managers to know what to do, who to tell in such situations. How to win through when under ethical pressure: power of example. Power of the 80:20 rule. Winning respect, gaining influence and creating space for others to do the right thing.

http://www.ceway.eu This clip presents the steps which cosmetic product manufacturers need to take in order to be able to sell their products in the EU. The rough steps for placing the cosmetic products on the market are the following: classify your product, assign a responsible person, compile the product information file, notify your product to the CPNP, put your cosmetic product on the EU market. You have to remember that you should also always keep the product information file updated. For the classification of your products you should check the definition of cosmetic products in the EU, which can be found in the EU cosmetics regulation 1223/2009. The second step is to assign a responsible person. This is requested the EU cosmetics regulation by saying: "Only cosmetic products for which a legal or natural person is designated within the Community as "responsible person" shall be placed on the market." Responsible person has to be designated by a written mandate and has to accept this role in writing. Product information file (PIF) is a basis for pre-market notification of cosmetic products. The product information file contains various information about the cosmetic product, including raw material specifications, finished products specifications, packaging specifications, cosmetic product safety report (CPSR), labelling etc. The last step before you can place the cosmetic product on the market is the notification of your product to the CPNP portal. Product notification has to be performed by the responsible person. The links which are mentioned in the clip are the following: - cosmetic product definition: http://www.ceway.eu/is-your-product-even-a-cosmetic-product/ - responsible person: http://www.ceway.eu/european-responsible-person-rp/ - product information file: http://www.ceway.eu/product-information-file-pif/ - cosmetic notification: http://www.ceway.eu/notification-process/

SAS Institute’s Global expert on Data Management and GDPR, Casper Pedersen, explains what the new EU Data Protection Regulation is all about. Why this new regulation? Consequences for the business? How do you start the work to comply with GDPR? - Soon you will have to find, evaluate and categorize your company’s stored Personal Data (PD) in what may be thousands of databases. In order to be compliant with this new regulation, in due time, new processes have to be in order. Consumer behavior and the Big Data created by the Internet of Things (IoT) is driving the digital transformation that is quickly reshaping all of today’s organizations. It places great demands on how personal information is treated. Protecting such personal information and consumer integrity has become a high priority for the EU. Under the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), every consumer and citizen has the right to know how PD is used – as well as the right to have his or her data completely erased upon demand. Naturally, this means that organizations that store consumer data must be vigilant and rigorous in protecting such data. The EU values consumer integrity to such a degree that companies who do not comply with GDPR may be fined up to 20 million EUR or 4% of annual global turnover. With one and a half year to implementation, there are a number of challenges to full GDPR compliance: Requirements for provision of documentation upon request of all data sources, the risks associated with each and every one of them, as well as processes in place to handle PD Internal processes and tools for identifying PD, controlling access to data, log user activity and handling of data that is duplicated in many instances and databases SAS Institute invites you to download a Solution Overview (http://www.sas.com/sas/offers/nordic/16/eu-data-regulation.html). This paper discusses the challenges outlined above, and describes how SAS analytics can deliver data management capabilities to help your organisation comply with the GDPR – by 2018 and beyond.
