Summary/Abstract: The article is based on the hypothesis that further development and implementation of market-based instruments in the EU environmental policy includes extension of the fields of implementation and establishment of sophisticated instruments in the domains with no such instruments. The author points out the role and significance of the marked-based instruments. He elaborates the results of the discussions and consultations initiated by the “Green paper on market-based instruments for environment and related policy purposes” (2007). The author also points out that the present situation in Serbia is characterized, inter alia, by the harmonization of the national policy and law with EU policy and law, by the introduction of new instruments as well as by the absence of a systematic analysis of the implications that are brought about by the introduction and implementation of these instruments, particularly having in mind the real capabilities of the Serbian economy and consumers.
