Consultation on problems faced by service providers in obtaining insurance cover when providing services in another Member State on a temporary basis
Åpen konsultasjon igangsatt av Kommisjonen 27.5.2013
BAKGRUNN (fra Kommisjonens konsultasjonsnettside, engelsk utgave)
Entrepreneurs and businesses should be able to provide services in other Member States on an unencumbered basis. They should be able to choose how they organise themselves when providing services beyond their national borders. They can set up a subsidiary or a branch in another Member State if they believe that there is adequate on-going business potential. Alternatively, they should be able to provide services across borders on a temporary basis where they remain established in their home country but where they provider services by a temporary presence in the customer’s country.
In many instances, businesses will be insured either because they have chosen to or because they are required to be insured. In the instance of the performance of a service in another Member State it is important to determine what the insurance requirements are in that Member State. Businesses should then be able to secure adequate insurance for their work in that other Member State.
The objective of this consultation is to determine the risks and obstacles individual entrepreneurs and businesses face when attempting to secure insurance cover for another Member State.
