Single Market Strategy
On 28 October 2015 the European Commission published its Single Market Strategy, which is deemed a core strategy for the current European Commission. Its key objective is to improve the functioning of the Single Market by:
- providing a regulatory framework that fosters the free movement of goods and the free movement of services, and enhances competitiveness;
- removing existing barriers to intra-EU trade and preventing the creation of new ones;
- promoting a business and consumer-friendly environment based on transparent, simple, and consistent rules offering legal certainty and clarity.
Implementation and enforcement are prioritised elements, but the strategy will also include legislative elements.
SELDIA is supporting the proper implementation and enforcement of EU Single Market legislation, ensuring no national restrictions on direct selling and a homogenous functioning of all retail channels across the EU.
