CEPI Position Paper on the Single Market Strategy for Europe

The Single Market is one of Europe’s greatest achievements. However the European Commission is seeking to make it work better and in October 2015 published its roadmap to deliver on President Juncker’s political commitment to unleash its full potential.

CEPI recognises that the Single Market provides benefits for professionals and consumers alike but when looking at the question of access to the real estate professions reminds that there are reasons for the existence of professional regulation including the protection of quality of services and consumer rights. It also urges that decisions on professional regulation should not be made solely for political reasons. These views are set out further in the position paper now published by CEPI and available on this website.
