Welcome words

The IMCO Committee is responsible for legislative oversight and scrutiny for EU rules on the free movement of goods and services, free movement of professionals, customs policy, standardisation and the economic interests of consumers.  The committee members work to reduce barriers to economic trade and simplify legislation to enhance competitiveness across the Single Market (SM), while taking care for consumer interests in a wide range of sectors.
You can follow our Committee's work on this site which includes agendas, meeting documents, information on hearings/workshops, video streaming and our newsletter.
A well-run SM is key to unlocking prosperity, innovation and greater competitiveness which benefits businesses and consumers.  We have many challenges and opportunities ahead, especially unlocking the potential of the Digital Single Market and the single market in services.  
Our mission is to ensure safe products, safeguard consumer rights, keep consumers informed about products/services, crack down on anti-competitive behaviour and reduce administrative burdens.
The committee works with all EU Member States to ensure that SM rules are practicable and that they are properly implemented and enforced on time.
It is a privilege to Chair this important Committee, and to work with members from across the political spectrum to bring real benefits to consumers, businesses and other organisations across the SM.
