Ministry of Environment and Transport Baden-Württemberg4March 2005 European Market and ICSMS ICSMS: initiated by the EU, Belgium, Sweden and Germany. Austria and Luxemburg joined the system during the development phase. Estonia started with the system in September 2003 Slovenia and the Netherlands started the trial in 2003. United Kingdom started the trial in June 2004. Switzerland started with the system in September 2004.

Ministry of Environment and Transport Baden-Württemberg14March 2005 Development of costs Annual cost for system providing will be splitted according to the Key of Nice (number of seats in the European Parliament). Increasing number of participating Member States is directly correlated to decreasing operation costs for all of them.
Ministry of Environment and Transport Baden-Württemberg15March 2005 Further improvements of ICSMS The objective of the project is to optimise ICSMS to make market surveillance in Europe more effective, efficient and transparent by: Further optimisation of the existing information system by connecting ICSMS to the RAPEX system. Improving the evaluation possibilities of ICSMS by integrating an evaluation module. Integration of all Member States languages into ICSMS in order to facilitate its use for all member states.
