The official documents on which the Administrative Commission for the Coordination of Social Security Systems has agreed and its decisions and recommendations are available on this website.
Decisions and recommendations
A number of decisions and recommendations of the Administrative Commission have been adopted on the provisions of the modernised coordination regulations (for older decisions, please refer to the related documents of this page).
Other official documents
- Practical guide - The applicable legislation in the EU, EEA and in Switzerland (2013)
- List of long term care benefits (Regulation 883/2004 art. 34)
- Additional or special family benefits for orphans payable under national legislation and which fall within the terms of Article 69 of Regulation 883/2004
- Declarations made by Member States in accordance with Article 9 of Regulation (EC) No 883/2004
- Declarations made by EEA EFTA States in accordance with Article 9 of Regulation (EC) No 883/2004
Structured electronic documents (SEDs)
Modernised coordination regulations require data to be exchanged electronically between institutions across the EU. This will be done through the EESSI system. Structured Electronic Documents (SED) have been designed and will be exchanged following electronic procedures (so-called Business Use Cases). This will make communication of data between institutions easier and more efficient. Until the end of the transitional period of two years towards full electric exchange between all Member States, paper versions of the SEDs can be used.
Portable documents (PDs)
Former paper ‘E-forms’ disappear under modernised coordination, but in some cases the information required by a citizen will be issued in the form of a portable document. There are ten portable documents altogether, including the European Health Insurance Card. Apart from the card, the others are paper forms. They will be issued from 1 May 2010 and even after the transitional period.
Main conclusions of the meetings of the Administrative Commission
The Administrative Commission meets at least four times a year. With a view to promoting transparency, delegations have agreed to publish the main conclusions of these meetings here, starting from the June 2016 meeting.
