This lecture discusses a number of issues in relation to the free movement of goods under Articles 34--36 TFEU. It discusses the case-law of the Court of Justice of the EU and views advanced in the academic literature on this subject, in particular concerning: the addressees of Articles 34--36 TFEU, in the light of the Opinion in Case C-171/11 Fra.bo; life after the Use cases; rules applicable in (part of) one Member State, and the question of whether it is appropriate to seek the assimilation of justifications under the case-law with those under Article 36 TFEU.
It is the text of the First Gerrit Betlem Distinguished Lecture, given at Southampton during the Summer Term 2012.
