Abstract

After the accession to the European Union, the Czech Republic became a part of the largest market in the world, the Single European Market. The Czech Republic has to keep the single market rules as set in the Treaty and secondary legislation. The corestone of the single market is the functioning of the four freedoms – free movement of goods, services, capital and persons. The article is focused on the functioning of the single market in the Czech Republic – the aim is to analyze two particular cases of breach of the principle of free movement of goods – the case of waste imports and the case of second hand cars imports. Both cases deal with the conflict between environmental protection and free movement of goods.
