Screening on Social Policy and Employment Concluded

Screening meeting with the European Union on Chapter 19 – Social Policy and Employment – was concluded in Brussels 16 Mars. 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. No discussions took place on special solutions, exemptions or adjustment but special attention was put on the need to prevent that the EU legislation leads to social dumping in the Icelandic labour market.
