Internal market

Construction is one of the most important productive sectors in the European Union and one of the main driving forces of economic development. This sector, which covers both buildings and civil engineering works (such as roads, bridges, railways, etc.), is at the top of the list of industrial sectors in terms of employment, creating jobs both directly and indirectly.
The European Union has embarked on the harmonisation of European standards concerning construction products, on the one hand, and placed the emphasis on the environmental aspects linked to the sector, on the other.
