Placing on the market of imported products

Orgalime considers that, as a general rule, imported products from non EU countries are placed on the internal market at the point in time when the product is “released for free circulation” by customs authorities and the ownership or other proprietary right concerning the product has been transferred from the third country economic operator to either the importer or and end user established in the EU.
