On 26 April 2012, the SCC published a report concerning professional colleges. The Report analyses whether Directive 2006/123/EC on services in the internal market has been correctly incorporated into Spanish legislation.  

Although the Report recognizes that the transposition of the Service Directive helped to eliminate certain anti-competitive practices, it highlights certain areas where improvement is still needed, in particular concerning barriers to taking up and exercising professional activities which prevent or hinder free provision of professional services.
