The article focuses on the call made by the European Commission (EC) for the simplification of the rules governing the trade of industrial goods within the European Union (EU). EC believes that the simplified rules will prevent countries placing additional restrictions on internal trade. EC proposed creating a common legal framework to govern the trade of all industrial goods. It also suggested that countries have to justify why they will not allow the sale of products that are marketed legally in other EU member states.
