  EC Packaging Law
The EC has been developing its own directive and in February, 1992 the Commission submitted a fifth version of the proposal for a new EC packaging directive to the individual governments.
The adoption of an EC packaging directive, essentially an eco- labelling issue, is important because it addresses the concerns of those within the EC who are opposed to the German packaging law, as well as to develop harmonized standards on packaging which are important for the single market goals of the Community.
As in Germany, waste disposal is a significant issue in the EC as a whole because landfills in some member states are nearing saturation points without adequate space for new landfills.

 EC law Structure   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
EC law an introduction to the legal structure.
When UK courts are faced with national law which is inconsistent with EC law, initially they would apply the UK law regardless, because Parliament, as the supreme law maker, had set out the law to be applied.
If a national law stops people from benefiting from that end result, the doctrine of direct effect allows individuals to cut through the inconsistent national law and go straight to the end result set out in EC law.

 EU, EC and European Law Essays and Dissertations
The conclusion to be drawn from this is that the existence of national legislation preventing the supremacy of EC law must result in the removal or disregarding of the domestic legislation to ensure the supremacy of EC law.
This means that the ECJ can only pass judgement on points of law to facilitate a judgement by a national court which applies that judgement on the relevant point of law, to the facts of a specific case in order to reach a verdict.

 The K-Zone: Supremacy of EC law
The earliest notion of a principle of supremacy of EC law appears to be in the case of VanGendEnLoos1963, which concerned a conflict between Dutch law, and the EC legislation on FreeMovementOfGoods.
However, once the doctrine of DirectEffect had become well established, it soon became clear that, in asserting the supremacy of EC law, the ECJ was asserting the supremacy of a body of law that was missing a number of key principles.
That decision was that EC law incorporated general principles derived not from the Treaty, but from the rules of natural justice and the constitutional principles of the member states.

 General Principles of EC Law
The reasoning of the ECJ is that the EC notion of fundamental human rights is inspired by the concepts behind municipal law provisions: the Court does not concede that it may be actually applying the Member States’ internal law.
Proportionality has since found confirmation in the EC Treaty itself where in Article 3b it is stated that "An action of the Community shall not go beyond what is necessary to achieve the objectives of the Treaty." The Court will tend not to interfere unless there is blatant and obvious infringement of the principle.
The origin of the former principle is German law and, according to this notion, EC measures must not, in the absence of an overriding matter of public interest, violate the legitimate expectations of those concerned.

Attention is also drawn to the issues of the legal base, the compatibility of reform with basic principles of EC law and the legitimacy of the exercise.
Finally, national law reform initiatives can be superimposed on the legal fragmentation generated by secondary law, producing further cleavages between and amongst the provisions of national and EC law.
Whilst the enhanced coherence of EC law can be seen as interwoven with the objects of the frame of reference there is no automatism between the two; whether these options will inform one another remains to be determined.

 EC Customs Law
The customs law of the EC is sometimes regarded as a specialist field, having little association with the main body of the EC law and divorced from some its most interesting developments.
On the other hand, it is fundamental to the relationship between the EC and the rest of the world, particularly, of course, in relation to trade relations and development policy.
Customs law is of critical importance to the internal market, and it is fundamental also to the Union's relations with the outside world.

 Breaches of EC Law and the International Responsibility of Member States   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Applied to the EC, use of the term `subsystem' as strictly understood is debatable.
First, a member state may be liable in international law for breach of EC law where that EC law is an international agreement to which the Community is a party.
Secondly, Simma's 1985 conclusions concerning the EC as a self-contained regime, assessed in light of recent developments in EC law on state liability, arguably remain applicable, suggesting that international responsibility for breaches of EC law by member states, in extremis, cannot be absolutely excluded.

The module will also examine the major developments in EU labour law, including: the law on equal treatment of men and women, working time, the information and consultation of workers, and the tension between labour law and the law of the single market.
One part of the explanation is developments within the EU level: the liberalisation of border controls, and the creation of legislative powers in relation to immigration and asylum law by the Treaty of Amsterdam.

 Fair Trading in EC Law
Fair trading, that is to say the idea of a fair market-behavioural standard in the pre-contractual relationship between business and consumers, has played a fundamental role in EC law since the very beginning of the Community.
The author provides a systematic and comprehensive analysis of primary law as interpreted by the European Court of Justice in its relevant case law and of Community legislation pertaining to fair trading.
The work is well documented, his analysis of the case law of the ECJ offers many new insights into legal doctrine and argument, and the abounding comparative literature is excellently researched.

This meant that the UK was in effect handing over some of its power to the EC and that directly effective EC law prevailed over national law as demonstrated in the case of Factortame1.

Another possible problem with the HRA with regards to EC supremacy is that of entrenchment of the Act into UK law.

 SSRN-Efficiency Claims in EC Competition Law and Sector-specific Regulation by Damien Geradin
Many competition lawyers and economists argue that the prime of objective of competition law regimes is to promote economic efficiency.
For instance, although this concept is referred to in an increasingly larger number of regulations, guidelines, etc., EC competition law does not offer any precise definition of economic efficiency.
Against this background, this paper seeks to clarify the meaning, scope, and validity of "efficiency claims" in EC competition law, as well as the importance of efficiency considerations in sector-specific regulation.

The Court affirmed strongly that the Greek authorities must defer to the judgment of the Hungarian courts on the issue of the validity of the certificates issued by the Hungarians pursuant to the association agreement.
If the authorities of a member State of import or the EC institutions failed to take into account the decisions delivered by the Hungarian courts’ ruling in carrying out their duty to review the legality of Hungarian administrative decisions, those authorities or institutions would infringe the exporter’s right to an effective judicial remedy.

 SSRN-A Legal Options Approach to EC Company Law by Gerard Hertig, Joseph McCahery
There are significant barriers to the EC's ability to promote efficient regulatory choice due to interest group pressures, diffuse control over the agenda-setting process, and a limited capacity to anticipate and meet a wide range of Member State demands.
This article shows that bringing options to the forefront of company law reform can reduce costs for small and medium-sized firms and provide clear benefits to companies that differ in their ownership and control structure from most large public corporations.
Switching to a company law regime with different sorts of options can have a good effect on stakeholders as well.
