International dimension and enlargement

European Union transport policy is not limited to the Union’s borders. It is the subject of a number of agreements with third countries aimed at converging technical standards and transferring technologies within the framework of cooperation agreements, specifically the Euro-Mediterranean Agreement. In addition, candidate countries for accession to the Union must adopt and apply European transport legislation. The progress of reforms in each country is regularly monitored and assessed as part of the accession process. The Union also negotiates agreements with third countries on market access for transport companies, particularly airlines.
