The customs union of the original six European Economic Community member states proved a solid base for the evolution of the European integration process in both a political and economic sense.
In this thoroughly revised and extended edition of his well-known book, The Customs Law of the European Economic Community, Dominik Lasok extends the notion of customs law to include trade law and suggests that EC customs law has evolved into the trade law of the European Union.
This new edition incorporates:
up-to-date information on the developments of the internal market
the adoption of the Community Customs Code
the completion of the Uruguay Round of GATT negotiations which resulted in the World Trade Organization
the transformation of the European Community into the European Union.
In addition, The Trade and Customs Law of the European Union focuses attention on future developments in a probing, thought-provoking way. This work gives academics and practitioners quick access to the various components of trade and customs law and their implications.
