We kindly invite you to the online Seminar on the revision of the Social Security Coordination regulations!
On 16 October 2020, the Labour Mobility Initiative will team up with the Organization of European Tech & Industry Employers Ceemet in organizing an online Seminar on the revision of the Social Security Coordination Regulations. The meeting will be attended by practitioners, technical experts and representatives of the EU institutions.
The Seminar will be an opportunity to present arguments in relation to key issues for companies providing services in other member states to the representatives of EU institutions. These are, for example, the definition of the registered office and the so-called prior notification (pre-notification) to the needs of obtaining A1 PDs. Participation in the meeting has already been confirmed by the Rapporteur, the German S&D MEP Gabriele Bischoff, the Romanian MEP Dragos Pislaru from the Renew Group and the representative of the German Presidency. We also count on the participation of a representative of the European Commission.

Negotiations on the revision of the Social Security Coordination Regulations
On September 30, 2020, the first trilogue on the revision of the Social Security Coordination Regulations chaired by the German Presidency took place. The meeting did not produce any specific results. Therefore, the next trilogues are planned for the end of October and mid-November.
During the discussion about registered office of a company, the German Presidency indicated that the working time should be deleted as a necessary element of the agreement. This proposal was not approved by the Rapporteur, Gabriele Bischoff, but confirmed the need for further work and changes to the definition. Negotiators also discussed the issue of prior notification, i.e. the obligation to inform the competent institution in the sending Member State about the posting of a worker in order to obtain an A1 PDs. It has been agreed that business trips and short-term posting will be exempt from that obligation. There was also a proposal that this exemption should not be available in selected sectors, e.g. a construction sector.
To everyone who wants to have an impact on the final shaping of social security coordination regulation – we very much encourage you to register and participate in the webinar!
