Single Market Scoreboard

It is to be noted that the Single Market acquis applicable in EEA EFTA States does not coincide exactly with that applicable in EU Member States. This situation arises from the time lag between the adoption or abrogation of legal acts by the EU and their incorporation into or deletion from the EEA Agreement.

Any comparison of the results from the two different Scoreboards (this one and the EEA EFTA Scoreboard) has to take this difference into account. For more information on Liechtenstein’s performance, please see the EFTA Surveillance Authority’s Internal Market Scoreboard.
