The Services Directive in Belgium
The Services Directive is a European law that aims to make life easier for companies that want to do business in the European Union. To learn more about licences and permits, please contact a Point of Single Contact.
Here you will find information on all procedures and requirements for companies that wish to do business or establish themselves in Belgium. It is about procedures and requirements lying within as well as outside the scope of the Services Directive. It is therefore clearly indicated whether a specific procedure or requirement falls within the scope of the Services Directive or not.
It is important to note that in Belgium formalities are imposed by different levels of authority. These formalities may differ depending on the region. Their scope of application is always mentioned in the procedure or requirement. In fact, there are federal, regional and community laws as well as municipal regulations.
