The European Union Services Directive Reviewed

As written in the EU Observer newsletter of 9 June 2006 (subscription available):

"On 29 May, the Competitiveness Council brokered a long-awaited agreement on one of the most controversial pieces of European legislation: the Services Directive. If the European Parliament confirms the compromise, this directive could revolutionise the EU internal market, says Sarah Lee, advisor for European Affairs at EUROCHAMBRES."

That EU Observer article by Sarah Lee is found under the title
[Comment] The services directive: What implications for companies?
where she writes inter alia:

"While the scope of the directive has been reduced - and some key sectors such as temporary work have been excluded - the text still covers most service sectors including hairdressing, hotels, construction, advertising, management consultancy and architect services.

If applied rigorously, the directive should considerably reduce the barriers within these services sectors, especially with respect to setting up a branch of a company in other member state
."
