Rule 138
Tom Vandenkendelaere (PPE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Follow-up to the Services Directive

On 5 May 2021, the Commission presented an update to its 2020 Industrial Strategy. One of the Commission's priorities is to fully enforce the Services Directive to ensure that Member States comply with their existing obligations, including the reporting obligation to identify and remove potential new obstacles.(1) The Single Market Enforcement Task Force (SMET) is also mentioned as a further tool to deal with restrictions and obstacles to the internal market.

1. How exactly does the Commission view the further development of the Services Directive in the coming years?

2. What steps will the Commission take to guarantee full enforcement of the Services Directive and thus ensure that it can be utilised to its full potential?

3. Apart from the Services Directive, what additional steps will the Commission take to guarantee the proper functioning of the internal market and to safeguard European businesses from any barriers or obstacles to trade within it?
