What We Do

Internal Market Information System (IMI)

The Internal Market Information System (IMI) is a secure, multilingual online database that facilitates the exchange of information between public authorities involved in the practical implementation of EU law.

IMI helps authorities in all Member States to fulfil their cross-border administrative cooperation obligations in multiple Single Market policy areas. The beneficiaries of this cooperation are businesses and citizens.

Launched in 2008, IMI currently supports 67 administrative cooperation procedures in 17 different policy areas.

IMI is presently used under areas such as, the Service Directive, Posting of Workers, the Professional Qualifications Directive, GDPR and Public Documents.
