Key achievements of the single market

One single market, many different benefits

The Single Market upholds strict safety standards. These ensure that consumer products meet stringent quality and safety requirements, giving you peace of mind when you make purchases.

The ease of purchasing goods and services online from any EU country empowers you with a broader range of choices and the convenience of cross-border shopping.

The push for a common charger for electronic devices reduces electronic waste, making them more compatible and environmentally friendly.

Consistent data protection regulations across the EU safeguard your personal information, bolstering trust in digital transactions.

Travelers within the Single Market benefit from standardised passenger rights, ensuring fair treatment and compensation in cases of disruptions or inconveniences.

A unified approach to environmental regulations supports sustainable practices, contributing to a cleaner and healthier environment across EU countries.

Since goods and services move freely within the Single Market, businesses benefit from reduced delays and costs.

Students have the opportunity to pursue higher education in various EU countries, fostering cultural exchange and expanding their horizons.

The Single Market enables professionals to seek employment in different member states, promoting skill mobility and career growth.

Citizens can retire in any EU country while enjoying their pension and social security benefits, enhancing their quality of life and cultural experiences.

The mutual recognition of qualifications allows professionals to work and share their expertise across borders.

Travelers can stay connected without incurring extra costs for mobile roaming, promoting seamless communication throughout the EU.

The ability to access digital content while traveling ensures a consistent experience for services like streaming and e-books.

Temporary stays in other EU countries are made safer with access to necessary medical treatment through the European Health Insurance Card.
