  • Matei, Lucica
  • Matei, Ani


The concepts and approaches of public marketing are moreover used and quantified in the national and European public systems. Adapted, with behaviours specific to the public system, the fundamental concepts of marketing represent a component of “the new culture of public service”. The paper aims to present aspects concerning the use of the fundamental concepts of public marketing - service, market, placement -, in the European decision-making practice, respectively in the regulatory framework of the single market, in the framework of providing public goods and services in the European space. The paper emphasizes the impact of the application of infringement procedures during 1996-2010 on the market of services and satisfaction of citizens’ needs. The regulation of the single market, the practices and „rules” of organisation and functioning are favouring the achievement of the economic and social function of the services of general interest, supporting the functionality of the internal market. The contribution of this paper consists in the analysis of the European regulations, of the content of procedures for sanctioning the EU Member States concerning the market and services from the prospect of the concepts of marketing, market, services, placement, satisfaction of public needs as well as of their interpretation
