Public (e.g. Social security) or private insurance = payment of benefits subject to previous declaration  100% (10 MS)

Declaration to other competent authority (e.g. Labour Inspectorate)  50% (5 MS)

principle to draw up eu harmonised classifications for esaw phase 3

Principle to draw up EU harmonised classifications for ESAW Phase 3:

Detailed enough to be effective

Not to complex to be easy to implement

Sufficiently adaptable with national existing tools, and allowing more detailed classifications at national level
