goods
1. for the purposes of the Sales of Goods Act 1979, 'goods' include 'emblements, industrial growing crops and things attached or forming part of the land that are agreed to be severed before sale or under the contract of sale'. For the purposes of the law of Scotland, 'goods' are defined by the Act as all corporeal movables. Specifically excluded, however, is money – unless it is bought as a curiosity, as in the case of gold Jubilee pieces: Moss v. Hancock [1899] 2 QB 111.
2. in the law of the European Union the word has a special definition in relation to the operation of the customs union and in particular in the provisions relating to the free movement of goods. It covers industrial and agricultural products regardless of whether they come from member states or are imported from other states, and it is this inclusion of imports that makes a customs union different and more substantial than a free trade area. The important focus is upon products that can be valued in money that can be the subject of a commercial transaction: Commission v. Italy [1968] ECR 2247. See also product.
