Single Market for Goods

The free movement of goods, with the objective of ensuring trade within the European Union, is one of the cornerstones of the internal market. Provided for by the Treaty establishing the European Community, it offers businesses the advantage of larger markets and European citizens a wider choice at lower prices in an open and competitive area. Free movement applies under the same conditions for all goods circulating within the EU, including those from third countries, with the exception of those posing risks to consumers, public health or the environment. The ban on measures restricting imports and exports between Member States and the principle of mutual recognition ensure compliance under the monitoring of the Commission.
