  Direct effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Direct effect is a principle of European Union Law stating that European regulations have a direct effect on EU citizens and on the laws of the member states.
Directives can be subject to direct effect, but certain limitations have been imposed upon the extent of the doctrine.
A key requirement is that the directive is capable of being relied upon by a claimant or rather that the text of the directive must not be vague nor be ambiguous.

 Direct applicability   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Although often confused with the doctrine of direct effect, direct applicability refers to the fact that regulations require no implementing legislation within individual member states - they take effect as soon as they are published by the European Commission
The early jurisprudence of the ECJ suggested that 'direct effect' was a consequence of direct applicability as it was thought that the drafters of the original treaty intended regulations, and only regulations, to be directly effective.
Direct applicability is now taken to mean that regulations require no domestic implementation - if direct effect was ever only intended to be a consequence of direct applicability then the relationship has been severed by a series of ECJ cases.

 PlanetPapers - European Union - When and to what extent are directives ‘directly effective’?
The judicial foundations for direct effect were laid down in Van Gend En Loos (1963) a case which arose when the applicant was charged an import duty by Customs and Excise that had been increased to 8% in contravention of Article 12 of the EC treaty, which specified 3%.
They argued that directives were not capable of having horizontal direct effect as in accordance with Article 249, “the binding nature of a directive Â…exists only in relation to ‘each member state to which it is addressed’ and thus since it does not address individuals it cannot be binding upon them.
Directives appear to be vertically directly effective with horizontal limitations but this is a position that has been undermined with the expansive definition of state and the concept of indirect effect which provide another means for directives to be given legal effect within member states without having to encounter the restrictive conditions of direct effect.

 FindLaw: Cagdas Ergun Law - Secondary Files: Disclaimer: EC Judicial Control III   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Indirect effect of an EC measure means the obligation of the national courts to interpret their domestic laws in the light of the objectives laid down by the provision.
However, from the definition of directives, it appears that the criteria for direct effect expressed by the ECJ in precedent decisions are not fulfilled.
Another arguments supporting the necessity of direct effect doctrine can be that it would not be compatible with the binding character attributed to a directive by article 249 of EC Treaty not to give the right of invocation of these provisions to the individuals before their domestic courts.

 The European Court of Justice and Direct Effect for the Gatt: A Question Worth Revisiting
As previously noted, the lack of direct effect allows members to settle a dispute by means of a negotiated agreement prior to a formal ruling on the validity of trade measures.
Having recognized the possibility of non-mercantilist motives for denying direct effect to the GATT 47 and GATT 94, it is necessary to examine the ECJ's method of analysis to determine if it proves that the Court's direct effect doctrine is motivated by a protectionist agenda.
Thus, it is not clear that the Court's denial of direct effect prior to a WTO ruling necessarily proves that the Court acts with protectionist motives.

 EMIRE: FINLAND - DIRECT EFFECT
Certain provisions of the EC founding Treaty and EC Directives are capable of producing a direct legal effect which operates against a Member State to the advantage of individual citizens.
In order to be capable of having direct effect provisions must, however, be sufficiently clear, unconditional and precise.
Directives cannot have direct effect in horizontal employment relationships.

 Marson, 'Access to Justice: a deconstructionist approach to horizontal direct effect' [2004] 4 Web JCLI
Direct Effect is a concept which enables an affected individual to use a Directive’s provisions in a domestic court after the date of transposition if the Member State has been guilty of either non-implementation or incorrect implementation.
The concept of Direct Effect of EC law was developed by the ECJ to allow individuals and organisations to use the provisions of EC law within their Member States’ domestic courts without having to wait for the Member State to fulfil some obligation which it had omitted to do.
Directives are chosen as a vehicle for the creation of rights because of the discretion they thus afford to Member States as to how and in what form the law is transposed, giving greater power to Member States so that EC obligations are not overly intrusive.

 Direct effect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The concept of Direct Effect follows from the principle of Supremacy of European law devised by the ECJ.
The particular result (ie how Direct Effect will work in each particular type of EC law) depends on the type of EC law you are discussing - you need to get the distinctions quite clear in your mind now.
Directives are always the examiners favourite because of the problems of vertical and horizontal Direct Effect.

 No direct effect for pollution control daughter directives - UK Environment Law Developments (Legal500.com)
In Case C 168/95 Luciano Arcaro, the Cadmium Directive 85/513, a daughter directive of the Dangerous Substances Directive 76/464 was held not to be directly effective against the representative of a precious metals plant as he was not 'an emanation of the state'.
Perhaps more significantly the Advocate General thought that the directive was not unconditional or sufficiently precise to be capable of being recognised as having direct effect.
Even if this constitutional basis for rejecting the direct effect doctrine was found to be incorrect, many environmental directives follow the pattern of the Dangerous Substances Directive and the daughter Cadmium Directive and the doctrine of direct effect in the case of many of the traditional forms environmental directives would be very limited indeed.

 Voest-Alpine Trading v. Bank of China   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
for breaches of contract, in addition to torts, constituting direct effects and then found that either the breaches of the cement contracts or the breaches of the letters of credit constituted direct effects on the suppliers who were beneficiaries of the breached agreement.
This, he reasoned, removed the requirement of the effect being substantial and foreseeable because this requirement is part of section 18, jurisdiction to legislate, not section 19, jurisdiction to adjudicate.
The Court began its analysis of the directness of the effect of Argentina's action by recognizing the Second Circuit's rejection of the substantial and foreseeable requirement for the effect to be direct.

 Diabetes: Resistance to Insulin's Acute Direct Hepatic Effect in Suppressing Steady-State Glucose Production in ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Glucagon potentiates the direct effect of insulin (6,14,15), and we have recently demonstrated that the insulin-induced suppression of glucagon and FFAs has additive or cooperative effects in mediating the acute extrahepatic effect of insulin on GP (12).
The balance between the direct and indirect effects of insulin in suppressing GP depends on the relative exposure of liver and extrahepatic tissues to insulin and the sensitivity of the tissues to insulin.
To determine whether the diabetic state also reduces the direct effect of insulin in humans, in the present study we examined the acute effects of portal versus peripheral insulin delivery on GP in patients with type 2 diabetes.

 Direct Marketing Effect
Direct Marketing does not only generate short term response, but also creates, strengthens and maintains affiliations between your target groups and your brands, which are extremely important in the longer term.
It is also possible to draw a comparison with the performance related to other media you may use in a multimedia campaign or with similar DM campaigns (benchmarking).
Mail Effect has shown various advertisers that good DM campaigns can result in a marked increase in their brand awareness and enhance the strength of their brand, even when the recipients have already been exposed to another communication medium such as television commercials.

 THE EUROPEAN COURT OF JUSTICE AND DIRECT EFFECT FOR THE GATT: - 2. Doctrinal Analysis
Indeed, he claims that a continued denial of direct effect shows that "the provisions of GATT are instead treated as the `children of a lesser God', not worthy of the Court's attention." [19]
Because the ECJ could always grant direct effect to the GATT while at the same time holding that the Community had properly invoked a safeguard clause, one must move beyond the doctrinal question of the ECJ's case law consistency to consider whether the political economy of the GATT safeguard regime really demands direct effect.
Thus, direct effect may not have been appropriate for the GATT 47 because it would have effectively allowed an individual to interfere with a process of ongoing negotiations between the contracting parties.

 Kevin's English law glossary: direct effect
EU legislation is said to have `direct effect' when its provisions can be relied on in national courts, without further implementation by the national legislatures.
However, this vertical direct effect can not be relied on until the time limit for implementation has expired (see Ratti (1978)).
However, the basic premise that Directives have no horizontal direct effect has been tempered by the ECJ's insistence that national law should be interepreted in accordance with EU legislation, to give effect to their obligations under Art.

 THE EUROPEAN COURT OF JUSTICE AND DIRECT EFFECT FOR THE GATT: - 1. Introduction
The Court distinguished its previous direct effect holdings by stating that "the GATT provisions have an independent meaning which, for the purposes of their application in specific cases, is to be determined by way of interpretation." [8] In the end, however, the Court found that the contested measures did not constitute an illicit commercial practice.
Thus, he concludes that it is inconsistent to deny direct effect to the GATT.
Second, he argues that granting direct effect to the GATT would force the Community to adopt a rule-based liberal economic foreign trade policy which would maximize the economic welfare of the Community.

EU legislation is said to have horizontal direct effect if its provision can be relied on in national courts in disputes between private individuals.
Horizontal direct effect is less readily asserted than vertical direct effect, in which EU legislation can be relied on against the state.
Regulations and Treaty articles can have horizontal direct effect, provided that the Van Gend criteria are met (see Van Gend en Loos (1963)).

 The Principle of Direct Effect
A directive cannot have direct effect until the time limit has elapsed; this was established by Publico Ministero v Ratti [1979][8] in which the claimant sought to invoke two harmonization directives before their allocated implementation period had elapsed.
In this case the time limit for implementation has not yet expired, and still leaves the UK government one month to implement the provision of the directive relating to cucumbers and tomatoes, and comply with their legal obligations.
However, because the directive has been implemented through a Statutory Instrument the UK courts can challenge the legislation on the grounds that it is 'ultra vires'.
