'Limited authorisation schemes' differ from other authorisation schemes in that the designated limited number of available authorisations necessitates some kind of selection procedure among applicants. Consequently, questions rise regarding the lawfulness of such limitations together with challenges to the temporal and territorial scope of these authorisations. To an increasing extent, European law offers some general requirements for these schemes. This article explores these requirements by starting with the provisions in the new Services Directive and extending the results to a more general European framework.
