Abstract and Keywords

The free movement of goods holds an important place in the EU law canon. The evolution of the case law of the European Court of Justice on the scope of application of the Treaty provisions—particularly the prohibition on quantitative restrictions on imports and measures having equivalent effect—provides the traditional focal point for scholarly attention. Yet this privileging of European judicial governance can detract from the other institutional locations—legislative and administrative, international and transnational—where norms are promulgated or elaborated or applied. More worryingly, it can pay insufficient attention to the nature of goods themselves and issues that may pertain to their movement. The aim of this chapter is to contextualize the iconic case law of the Court of Justice within this wider governance framework and to foreground the regulation of alcohol, tobacco, and chemicals as particular examples of goods.

Keywords: alcohol, chemicals, proportionalty, tobacco, free movement of goods
