What is the EU Services Directive?

The directive is a European law which came into force December 2009. It aims to open up the European internal market to cross-border trade in services by making it easier for service providers to set up business or offer their services in other EU countries. The directive allows you to apply and pay online for a variety of licences and permits.

Online licensing applications and permits

We are currently working towards an online application which will fulfil the requirements of the directive.

Through this you will be able to complete applications for licences and permits, submit supporting information to your application and pay the fees electronically.

Our site will be updated when the application becomes available.
