Consultation on the Safety of Tourism Accommodation Services

Although the
safety of tourism accommodation services is the competence of Member States,
the presence of a strong cross-border dimension in this type of service
suggests a reflection on their quality and safety levels across Member States.

Consumers should indeed expect to be able to purchase tourism accommodation
services with confidence for their own safety regardless of their choice of
accommodation or destination within the EU.

The objective
of this consultation is to gather input and quantifiable evidence from all
relevant parties with an aim to evaluate fundamental aspects related to tourism
accommodation safety: whether the existing instruments and their implementation
throughout the EU are adequate and sufficient by measuring the nature and
extent of the safety risks and their potential link to flaws or gaps in the
current legislative framework, and to what extent they have an impact on the
provision of such services across borders as well as on SMEs and vulnerable
consumers, in order to make a clear distinction of what objectives are best met
at which level.

The consultation is open till 30th November 2014.
