Acquisition of goods between members of the European Union

The European Union is a unique economic and political partnership of 28 European countries. Single or „internal” market allowed the free movement of goods, services and people and become the main economic engine of the EU. The establishment of a single market removed most trade barriers. Given the fact that between the member states of European Union there are no boundary lines or customs control, we cannot talk about the import and export of goods when it comes to trade and the movement of goods in the EU. The term „import”, therefore, replaces the term „acquisition” and the term „export” the term „supply of goods to another member state”. These terms are used in order to distinguish those transactions from the „import and export” which are still utilized in the exchange of goods with non-member countries of the European Union, i.e. third parties. After joining the EU, Croatia accepted all of the elements of EU trade policy. The internal single market has brought many benefits for both manufacturers / suppliers and end consumers. The common market is the greatest achievement of the EU. In order to obtain a guarantee of free movement of goods, services, people and capital, lawmakers had to make hundreds of directives needed to remove technical, cultural, legal and regulatory difficulties within the EU that Croatia had to accept.
