The EEA Agreement extends the internal market with its four freedoms: free movement of goods, persons, services and capital, as well as some horizontal and flanking policies, to the EFTA countries. The Agreement could also serve as a multilateral framework for preparing Central and EasternEuropean countries in the process of becoming full members of the European Union This book gives 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, and state aids. These are allareas 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.
