Member States to implement laws to support the digital single market

Indicator Status Evidence
Has the Services Directive been implemented? Yes The Provision of Services Regulations 2009 were made on 11 November 2009. They are the main Statutory Instrument which implements the EU Services Directive into UK law. A Department for Business Innovation and Skills screened a Primary Legislation in the UK and checked for compliance with the Services Directive 2007-2009.. Non compliant legislation has been amended. The retained authorisation schemes are justified and have been reported to the Commission and other Member States..
Has the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive been implemented? Yes The Unfair Commercial Practices Directive (UCPD) was adopted on 11 May 2005. Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations implementing the Directive in the UK came in to force on 26 May 2008 -
Has the Telecoms Framework been implemented? Yes Her Majestys Government has implemented the framework on time and we believe we have taken a sensible and pragmatic approach to implementing article 5 (3) of the e-privacy directive by giving industry a one year lead in before the national regulatory authority will begin to enforce the new law. Statutory Instruments were laid in Parliament at the beginning of May 2011 and the framework was implemented in full on the 26 May 2011 deadline.
Has the Audiovisual Media Services Directive been implemented? Yes Three Statutory Instruments have been introduced by UK government: • The Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2009 (SI 2009/2979) • The Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2010 (SI 2010/419) • The Communications Act 2003 (Disclosure of Information) Order 2010 (SI 2010/282) Those Statutory Instruments, alongside existing provisions in UK Law, have fully implemented the requirements set out in the audio visual media services regulations.
