Although, most of the green trade barriers faced by Finnish companies are in markets outside the EU, there still is a small amount of problems in the internal market. The most important concrete trade barriers in the internal market concern taxes and fiscal legislation and technical trade barriers, such as suspicions that the technical product requirements applied are against EU provisions. A concrete example concerns the EU directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (RES) and its criteria for biofuel. The EU Member States are currently implementing this directive into their own legislation. To guarantee that the EU’s internal market functions effectively it is important that the RES directive is implemented in a manner which does not discriminate against different biofuel sources and technologies.http://www.kauppapolitiikka.fi/Public/default.aspx?contentid=231773&nodeid=41393&contentlan=1&culture=fi-FI
