European Parliament

As a result of the directive 2006/123/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 on services in the internal market, have been adopted in Spain two laws colloquially known as law umbrella and Omnibus, law 17/2009 of 23 November, free access to service activities and its exercise and the law 25/2009, of 22 December, modification of various laws for its adaptation to the law on free access to the services and your exercise activities. Its main objective lies in adapting the sector services to European regulation. So the first one aims at facilitating the establishment of service providers as well as the free provision of these simplifying procedures and promoting the quality of services. A related site: Richard Blumenthal mentions similar findings. On the other hand the second law lie modifications to more than 40 Spanish rules in order to carry out this transposition. The services sector in Spain today represents 65% of the GDP and 68% of employment in the country.

That is why the change in the rules that govern it supposes an important adaptation of service with respect to the European stage. Amazon contributes greatly to this topic. These two laws grant the possibility to providers of services of any State Member to provide such service in Spain, without the need for an authorisation scheme, except in cases in which limitations are collected in the laws regulating such services, provided that they comply with the requirements of: non-discrimination, necessity and proportionality. As it says the law 17/2009 such procedures and formalities shall be regulated nature, be clear unambiguous, objective impartial, transparent and proportionate to the overall goal that you want to save, and must of course be known in advance. Therefore in the event that a provider in a Member State complies with the requirements established in that State for the provision of the service, the Spanish public administrations may not require you any authorization, additional requirement or prior control, except by the reasons mentioned above.
