This aim of this Tool is to stimulate companies from the Silver Economy market (any economic activity targeting people of more than 60 years old) to consider the regulations and routes to market in the 2 Seas regions of Belgium, France, the Netherlands and the UK*, and signpost them to more information. It should not be considered comprehensive or as a replacement for independent information-gathering.

Users of this Tool are advised to refer to the third-party links for more information and to conduct their own research in addition to using this tool. SEAS 2 Grow is not responsible for third-party content, nor does it preferentially support or advocate any of these sources.
