The Czech market is considered to be quite open with a decreasing tendency of non-tariff barriers. It is very similar to other European Union (EU) countries´ systems of custom tariff and non-tariff measures. The Czech Republic joined the EU in May 2004 and the customs and other market access conditions are harmonized with those of the EU. This means that the trade measures and trade regulations are adopted in favour of more free trade environment.
