EU digital single gateway

printer Mail

The European Commission has adopted a package of measures aimed at introducing a single digital gateway covering 13 key administrative procedures by 2020. Among these procedures are: registering for social security benefits; claiming pension and pre-retirement benefits from public or semi-public schemes; general registration of business activity; registration of employers with public or semi-public pension and insurance schemes; notification to the social security schemes of the end of contract with an employee; and payment of social contributions for employees.

The package includes plans for a single market information tool, allowing the Commission to obtain ‘timely, comprehensive and reliable quantitative and qualitative information’ from selected market players in specific instances, subject to strict confidentiality requirements.

The Commission also aims to increase the use of ‘SOLVIT’, a free of charge service provided collaboratively by national administrations since 2002 to individuals and businesses experiencing difficulties while moving or doing business cross-border in the EU, providing a faster, informal alternative to filing a court case, submitting a formal complaint to the Commission or putting forward a petition.
