The impact of European legislation.
European law is having an increasing impact on all aspects of medical practice.
The fundamental basis of the treaty setting up the European Economic Community was the promotion of European economic integration through the dismantling of barriers to trade and to the movement of workers within the Community.
The removal of barriers to trade and movement has, however, been mirrored by a concern that harmonizing of conditions of trade should not lead to a diminution in standard and has therefore been increasingly associated with regulations to set « quality » thresholds for the protection of both workers and consumers.
The existence of different legal regimes with respect to goods and services which may be traded internationally is itself seen as being a potential barrier to free trade and movement of workers.
