Guarantee of the Spanish Market Unity
The Market Unity Law (Law 20/2013, of December 9th) establishes basic principles and standards that guarantee the market unity along the whole country, through a better regulation, to create the most favourable environment to competition and investment.
For this reason, the law defines a model for strengthening cooperation and collaboration between the State, Autonomous Communities and Local Entities, creating the Market Unity Council that has as objective to follow-up on the implementation of the content of the Law.
The law contains mechanisms for the protection of economic operators in the area of the free movement of goods and services and freedom of establishment. It contains two types of procedures, an administrative appeal - article 26,- as an alternative to the Spanish administrative appeal system in those situations in which the market unity is broken by Public Administrations´ actions and an information process -article 28,- as an agile solution to remove obstacles and barriers to the market unity pointed out by economic operators and consumers.
