Background

The Commission is proposing an initiative which will aim to enhancing the Single Market’s resilience, by providing adequate information, coordination and communication mechanisms between EU institutions, Member States and stakeholders adapted to different phases of a crisis; providing the means to ensure such resilience including availability of products and services relevant for a certain type of crisis and guaranteeing as much as possible the free circulation of goods, services and persons.

To achieve these objectives, the Commission will assess a range of policy options for the content and scope of the Instrument, combining legislative and non-legislative measures. The options could be structured along two pillars operational in a specific phase: (crisis preparedness and crisis response).
