(p.222) 6 Regulation through Legislation
Regulating Services in the European Union

Vassilis Hatzopoulos

Oxford University Press

Ever since the publication of the General Programmes of 1962, regulating the internal market for services has been a riddle for the EU. In its effort to open up trade in services, the EU legislature has tried and erred — with occasional successes — in various ways. Traditionally, a basic distinction is drawn between, on the one hand, sector-specific and, on the other hand, horizontal legislation. Helpful as it may be, this distinction is neither accurate nor historically precise. This chapter describes the basic regulatory blocks adopted by the EU legislature, and then subjects them to more appropriate normative classifications.
