Digital Agenda for Europe

01-02-2018

Since 1995, information and communication technologies (ICTs) have driven productivity gains and growth in the EU[1]. Over the past three decades, technological ‘convergence’ has been blurring the boundaries between telecommunications, broadcasting and IT. The Commission launched the digital single market in 2015 to deliver the main legislative proposals, such as boosting e-commerce, copyright, ePrivacy, harmonisation of digital rights, harmonised VAT rules and cybersecurity.

Continuous efforts are required to ensure the further deepening of the single market, which could yield significant gains for EU consumers and businesses. In particular, the digital single market opens up new opportunities to boost the economy (through e-commerce), while also cutting red tape (through e-governance and the digitalisation of public services ...

The internal market is an area of prosperity and freedom, providing access to goods, services, jobs, business opportunities and cultural richness. Continuous efforts are required to ensure the further deepening of the single market, which could yield significant gains for EU consumers and businesses. In particular, the digital single market opens up new opportunities to boost the economy (through e-commerce), while also cutting red tape (through e-governance and the digitalisation of public services).

Free movement of goods

The free movement of goods is secured through the elimination of customs duties and quantitative restrictions, and the prohibition of measures having an equivalent effect. The principles of mutual recognition, elimination of physical and technical barriers, and promotion of standardisation were added in order to continue the completion of the internal market. The adoption of the New Legislative Framework (NLF) in 2008 strengthened the free movement of goods, the EU’s market surveillance system and ...

The mutual recognition of diplomas

01-11-2017

The freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services are cornerstones of the single market, enabling the mobility of businesses and professionals throughout the EU.

Different measures for their harmonisation and mutual recognition have been adopted, and further legislation on the subject is under way.
