The European Commission (EC) has published an Inception Impact Assessment on the revision of the Mutual Recognition Regulation (EC) No 764/2008, titled, Achieving more and better mutual recognition for the single market for goods.

A recently released report on the European Union's (EU) Single Market Policy identified the food sector as one of five sectors where problems with the correct application of mutual recognition exist. The report, Evaluation of the Application of the mutual recognition principle in the field of goods, is based on an evaluation, carried between June 2014 and May 2015, to identify shortcomings with the principle of mutual recognition.
