The role of Points of Single Contact

Pursuant to the Services Directive (directive 2006/123/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 on services in the internal market), each EU Member State was obliged to set up Point of Single Contact.

You want to know more about the Services Directive, read the article – Services Directive.

PSC shall ensure the possibility to complete all the procedures and formalities necessary to take up and conduct service activity in a  given Member State.

PSC are supposed to be places collecting scattered information from many administrative bodies so that an interested entrepreneur or future entrepreneur receives full information on the issue connected with running business activity in the territory of our country.

Member States are free to decide how to organize PSCs. After almost a decade of functioning of Services Directive, each Member State developed its own model of PSC, from physical information facilities in public spaces to extensive internet portals based on transaction model.

A contact point has been put in place in Poland as amended by Article 46(11) of the act on the provision of services in the territory of the Republic of Poland, which entered into force on 10 April 2010. The scope of the Polish PSC is specified in the provisions of act on freedom of establishment in Chapter 2a.
