The guesthouses in york york guesthouses EHHA ranges from national private house owner associations to managers associations to platforms. Trade associations and member companies operate in all the European Union member countries. The core of the association is the distribution of short term rentals in private houses and apartments.

The managers and platforms in the sharing economy can help to solve some of the needs for regulation through self-regulatory mechanisms, also in regard to safety in accommodations. Comments On the Green Paper The safety of customers when staying in tourism accommodation is an important issue including a wide range of very detailed national legislation. In Europe the governments publishes guides on legislation gatwick guesthouses that guesthouses bloemfontein impacts on accommodation york guesthouses york guesthouses businesses. This guides lists at number of legislations and sets of regulations that relate to the safety of customers while staying in short-term accommodations, such as holiday homes, camping, hotels etc. Governments around Europe deal with explaining the breadth of legislation that governs the safety york guesthouses of customers guesthouses south africa in this type of accommodation. Considering the range and complexity of the legislation that impacts on the safety of siem reap guesthouses customers in york guesthouses the European countries who have extensive legislative requirements, there are clear reservations to the feasibility of a European initiative to develop a standard for an all-encompassing term as accommodation safety.
As guesthouses in ballsbridge a response to the Green Paper, the European Holiday Home Association can support a set of principles that york guesthouses we believe should guide the European Commissions approach to improving accommodation safety. Consumer Safety is Paramount There is agreement across the industry that the safety of customers is of primary importance both to individual businesses and with regard to the reputation of the industry as a york guesthouses whole.
Therefore, as a principle, we agree with moves that help to maintain and improve customer safety in accordance with identified problems.
Accommodation Safety is a Complex Are There are three aspects of accommodation safety that make york guesthouses it a very complex area for developing European standards.
These are: Tourism accommodation consists of a vast array of accommodation types from tents and yurts through to caravans, boats, holiday homes and castles.
Every country (and region within every country) has its own building vernacular york guesthouses and national building standards are developed on the york guesthouses basis those different vernaculars. There is no york guesthouses york guesthouses one piece of legislation within each country that covers accommodation safety.
It is a vast matrix of legislation that differs from country to country Each Accommodation Type Needs to be Examined Separately As accommodation safety is a complex and wide-ranging subject, we support the view that it is not possible to develop a single standard, or even a range of standards that cover different aspect of customer safety.
Instead, we believe each accommodation type needs to be examined separately and that any standards need to be specific to a tightly defined accommodation type in guesthouses phuket order to prevent unintended impacts.
A Strong Evidence Base is Needed We believe that, as a principle of good york guesthouses governance, Governments at both guesthouses york the National soll guesthouses and European level should only develop new legislation or standards in response to the identification of specific problems and not simply to enhance the perception or status of an industry.
Actually some safety requirements should be de-regulated.
Therefore, before pursuing any initiative to improve accommodation safety, we would need to be convinced that there is a guesthouses bridlington significant problem and that the development of a European Directive was the most cost-effective means of resolving this york guesthouses problem.
