Chapter 7 scrutinises the institutional and procedural structures necessary for achieving homogeneity in the process of exporting the acquis to third countries. The first part of the analysis addresses the necessary institutional and procedural frameworks for dynamically updating the multilateral agreements to reflect changes in the internal market acquis. The second part considers the procedures for defining the key elements of the internal market acquis and the modalities of third country participation in the process of defining the acquis on the EU level. This includes an examination of the implications of the increasing use of new governance methods in the EU policymaking on the third country actors’ possibilities to influence the content of internal market acquis and to, thereby, increase the effectiveness of the norms transfer.
