The Netherlands will implement the obligations in the Posted Workers Directive from 1 March 2020.

As of 1 March 2020, an employer that posts a worker in the Netherlands must notify the Dutch authorities of the fact, following the Dutch implementation of the Enforcement Directive (article 9, section 1).

Additionally, the Dutch government has launched a new website. Notifications can be made through this website. The website also contains general information on posted workers as described in article 5 of the Enforcement Directive.
