The functioning of the internal market is crucial for the future of the European Union and for the achievement of its goals. Harmonization of national laws has primary importance for the regulation of the internal market. EU has used legislative and other non-legislative measures to harmonize national laws. New and more effective instruments for harmonization are developed that also provide stronger guarantees for a more balanced approach. Vertical regulation gives place to horizontal harmonization. The role of sectoral industries, non-government and professional circles rises, and this is allowing better preservation of national diversity by the member states.
