Summary
The EEA Agreement extends the internal market with its four freedoms, i.e. free movement of goods, persons, services and capital, as well as some horizontal and flanking policies, to the EFTA countries. The book aims to give readers an in-depth and practical understanding of the EEA rules governing the free movement of goods, namely: product coverage and rules of origin, technical barriers to trade, intellectual property, product liability, public procurement, competition, State monopolies and public undertakings, and State aid. These are all areas of crucial importance to economic operators throughout Europe. A chapter is also devoted to the situation in Switzerland after its decision not to ratify the Agreement. The book provides a useful tool for companies and their lawyers confronted with this new legal framework.
