Ready, Steady, Service! - Report on transposition of the Services Directive
On 24 November 2008, a year before the national transposition deadline, BUSINESSEUROPE held the event "Ready, Steady, Service!" that provided a snapshot of the state of play on the transposition of the services directive - adopted in December 2006 - into national law. BUSINESSEUROPE presented a comparative report on national transposition based on information provided by its member federations. Speakers and participants had the opportunity to express their views and expectations. Participants agreed on some key recommendations for a high-quality transposition of the directive by 28 December 2009.
