Changes to EU Service Directive

From 28 December 2009, the EU Services Directive has placed a responsibility on Local Authorities to make certain forms of application for specified licenses or certificates available for online submission.

Amongst these prescribed services are applications for a General Certificate of Safety for Designated Sports Stadia and Regulated Stands as determined by the Fire Safety and Safety at Places of Sport Act, Part III.

At present the Government are responsible for determining whether these formalities fall within the scope of the Directive and if they do an electronic version of the application form will be made available by the Government Office.
