This collection will encompass the evidence-based analytical papers of the Commission's Internal Market, entrepreneurship and SMEs department, at times in collaboration with other Commission departments.

This first issue of the Directorate-General for Internal Market's Single Market Economic Papers series presents a methodology to detect and analyse supply chain disruptions. It examines the mounting evidence of supply chain distress across the industrial ecosystems and the impacts on the production capacity of firms, and indirectly on price pressures. The methodology in the paper is designed to support policy makers in the design of appropriate responses to such disruptions.
