P-004909-17
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Richard Sulík (ECR)

 Subject:  Proposal for a directive on a proportionality test
 Answer(s) 

Proposal COM(2016) 0822 sets out clear criteria to be used by Member States when assessing the proportionality of draft national legislation that regulates professions and falls within the scope of the directive on the Recognition of Professional Qualifications.

Some of the requirements set out in national regulations on professions fall within the scope of the Professional Qualifications Directive and the Services Directive. Article 59(3) of Directive 2005/36/EC refers to the basic criteria to be followed by Member States when adopting new regulations on professions. Directive 2013/55/EU, amending Directive 2005/36/EC, introduced, among other requirements, an obligation for Member States to assess the proportionality of their professional regulations.

Why does the Commission propose the creation of new legislation rather than making additions or adjustments to Directive 2005/36/EC?
