Regulations Changes in Luxembourg in 2020

 

– TRIGGERING THE PURCHASING POWER INDEX

Last triggered in July 2018, it has been activated again on 1 January 2020.

The annual inflation rate of the national consumer price index (NCPI) reached 1.7% in December 2019.

As a result, all wages, salaries and pensions are automatically increased by 2.5%.

– TELEWORKING
French cross-border commuters have now 29 days of telework per year since July 2019.
This will help to alleviate recurring problems linked to transport difficulties.

All the patient’s essential health information is now centralized in an electronic file, under the control of each patient.

– SMOKE DETECTORS IN RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS
From 1 January 2020, homes must be progressively equipped with a smoke detector.
In 2018, 150,000 smoke detectors were distributed free of charge by the municipalities.

Gradually, all dwellings will have to be equipped within the next 3 years.

– TRANSPORTATION
Committed to a policy of sustainable development, the Grand Duchy wishes to reduce CO2 emissions by 1 million tonnes in 2020.
