(p.109) 6 Regulatory Reform Strategies and the Single Market Programme
Constructing a European Market

Michelle P. Egan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Provides a detailed assessment of the single market ‘1992’ programme and the renewed efforts by the European Union in the 1980s to address barriers to trade. The chapter covers the political and institutional reforms undertaken to relaunch European market integration, and the new regulatory strategies that involve states and firms in a complex ‘new approach’ to address the discriminatory effects of national regulations and standards. These efforts at regulatory reforms enable the European Union to delegate certain responsibilities to the private sector and shift from a ‘statist’ to a more market‐oriented policy style. Through the new approach and a related ‘global approach’ to testing and certification, the European Union has blurred the boundaries between the public and private sector in decision‐making and promoted new modes of governance by increasing competition among rules.

Keywords:   1992 programme, decision‐making, European Union, governance, market integration, reform, regulation, rule‐making, single market, standards
