This chapter explores how private regulation has been used for regulating services and examines the limitations thereof. It identifies two trends where private regulation plays a particularly important role, especially in the form of professional and disciplinary rules. On the one hand, the EU tends to promote private regulation as an alternative to EU regulation. At the same time, however, the EU is quite sceptical towards rules spontaneously adopted by private actors.
