The EU Commission wants Member States to exchange information regarding regulation. The Commission will also intensify inspections on whether the Member States are complying with EU law.
According to European Commissioner for Internal Market and Services Michel Barnier, the primary objectives of the action plan are that "consumers must be adequately protected, money laundering and fraud must be prevented, sport must be safeguarded against betting-related match-fixing and national rules must comply with EU law."
Barnier wants to facilitate exchanges of experience on regulation between Member States. In December 2012 he will organise a meeting between the Member States and a newly installed expert group, followed by a stakeholder conference in 2013.

I only heard they were concentrated on creating union banking supervision, i still haven't read nothing about changes regarding consumers. But it seems fair. Tthere's something that annoys me from the begining: if EU stands for free circulation of people, products and services, why can't i buy any product i want from another Member State and use it freely in my own country? I can buy books, cds, dvds, clothes, but i can't buy a car - or, if i do it, i will have to legalize it and pay a lot of money to change registration... there are still higher interests on this union, hope this can end soon for the best, i would love lo live in the United States of Europe, hope this is still the future of Europe.
