Question for written answer E-003354-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Sergio Gutiérrez Prieto (S&D)

 Subject:  EU-level harmonisation of private security services
 Answer in writing 

The current rules on private security services need to be reviewed and updated at EU level. Given that they are operating in the internal market, private security companies in the EU should be complying with that market’s fundamental principles.

A proposal for a single regulatory framework for private security services in the EU should therefore be drawn up with a view to establishing basic principles for the uniform development of such private security services in the Member States. Harmonised definitions and common criteria for both procedures and training would improve the well-being and safety of workers and make it easier for them to enjoy their freedom of movement rights.

Will the Commission look into whether it could put forward a proposal for a single regulatory framework for private security services in the EU?
