Chapter Summary

Free movement of services takes place without movement of the provider or the recipient of the services and movement is done by the activity or the outcome of the activity itself. "Services" should normally be provided for remuneration. Freedom to provide services entails a right for individuals who are nationals of a Member State and established within the Community, to move and reside freely in the area of the Community in order to have access to and pursue an economic activity. Any lawful activity performed in one Member State should be performed as the provision of a service in the other Member States, subject to any permitted justificatory grounds. An extensive jurisprudential law has acted as a background against which service provision has been carried out. Legal profession has been liberalized at Community level. Services will continue to be governed from the rules on free movement of goods.
