Coordination of social security systems: NO to exemptions to prior notification for posting in construction
Indeed, FIEC considers that such exemptions would open Pandora’s box in terms of fraud, with regard to the posting of workers.
On the other hand, FIEC considers that, instead of considering short-time exemptions for “administrative simplification” purposes, Member States should further develop simple digital tools and procedures for notifying posting. Full digitalisation would render the current discussions around exemptions to prior notification obsolete.
Co-rapporteurs call for broader use of the EU Taxonomy
On 25 February, in a public event organised by the Nordic Banking Associations, the former co-rapporteurs on the Taxonomy Regulation, Sirpa Pietikäinen (EPP) and Bas Eickhout (Greens), called for broader use of the EU Taxonomy. The classification scheme should be used in upcoming financial legislation such as MiFID or Solvency but also in public funding.
We will learn more about its further use once the renewed Sustainable Finance Strategy is published. However, it is already foreseeable that its application will go beyond the Taxonomy Regulation and become a key reference for sustainable financing and funding.
