Screening meeting on Freedom of movement for workers concluded

Screening meeting with the European Union on Chapter 2 – Freedom of movement for workers – was concluded in Brussels 9 February. At the meeting, which was the latter one of two, experts from Iceland and the EU compared the Icelandic legislation with the EU legislation falling under the Chapter. The Icelandic team was headed by Mr. Harald Aspelund, chairman of the EEA II negotiation team.

As part of the EEA-Agreement, Iceland has implemented most of the acquis under this chapter. The need for continued technical adaptations concerning national social security provisions that have already been negotiated as part of the EEA-Agreement was mentioned at the meeting. No talks about exemptions or special solutions took place.
