It may be one of the EU’s most important achievements, but the Single Market still has its stumbling blocks. Since its launch in 1992, the EESC has been closely involved in efforts to make the Single Market fully functional, for the benefit of European society.
The EESC’s Section for Single Market, Production and Consumption (INT) works to oil the wheels and complete the Single Market by preparing opinions that express the views of all elements of organised civil society. This means promoting the rights not only of manufacturers, service-providers and workers, but also of the ‘end-users’: the consumers.
The EESC’s Single Market Observatory (SMO) was set up in 1994 with the specific task of monitoring the Single Market, identifying obstacles and recommending solutions.
