Internal Market Information System (IMI)

Under EU single market laws, people and businesses have certain rights to move around the European Economic Area for work, study, trade, etc.

If your authority is involved in implementing these laws on the ground, you may need to exchange information with similar bodies in other countries.

The Internal Market Information System (IMI) enables you to do this.

What is IMI?

The Internal Market Information System (IMI) is a secure, multilingual online tool that facilitates the Exchange of information between public authorities involved in the practical implementation of EU law.

IMI helps authorities to fulfil their cross-border administrative cooperation obligations in multiple Single Market policy areas.

Currently, IMI supports 67 administrative cooperation procedures in 17 different policy areas. IMI can be adapted, with little or no development effort, to support further policy areas.

It has succeeded in modernising cross-border administrative cooperation and ensuring that the Single Market works on the ground. Although the end-users of IMI are national public authorities, the beneficiaries of this improved cooperation are businesses and citizens.
