  European Union - Design Regulation
In 1993, the Commission of the European Union issued proposals for harmonization of design laws within the various countries of the EU and the creation of an EU designs registry for granting design registrations that would be effective throughout the EU with a design registration office located with the Trademark Office in Alicante, Spain.
Thus, the adoption of a European Union-wide single registration system has been delayed for at least a few years and the harmonization Directive was adopted essentially leaving the issue of the use of component parts for the repair of a complex product to national law until at least 2004 (see our March 1999 Newsletter).
The Regulation provides for unitary design right protection throughout the European Union, although not precluding national rights, and has several similarities to the Community Trade Mark Regulation, including use of the same office in Alicante, Spain but also draws on provisions that were included in the yet-to-be-implemented Community Patent Convention.

  European Union regulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Regulation is a legislative act of the European Union which has a general scope, is obligatory in all its elements and is directly applicable in all Member States.
Regulations constitute one of the most powerful forms of EU law and must be given immediate force of law in Member States without the need to enact implementing measures.
Because regulations have direct effect, the individual countries do not need to pass local laws to bring them into effect, and indeed any local laws contrary to the regulation are overruled, as European Union Law is supreme over the laws of the Member States.

 Regulation
In particular, in the European Union, a regulation is directly enforced as law in all EU member states.
Concerning EC Law, Regulation has a general aim, and is obligatory in all its elements and directly applicable in all Member States of the European Union.
Because regulations are directly effective, the individual countries do not need to pass local laws to bring them into effect, and indeed any local laws contrary to the regulation are overruled (as EC Law is supreme over the laws of the Member States).

 A Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union --E--
In 1995, however, the European Council agreed to abandon the name in favour of the euro, in deference to German concern that the ECU would not be credible, given its track record of repeated devaluation occasioned by the weakness of several of its components, notably the lira, the peseta, the escudo and the drachma.
Generally assumed to be the anthem of the European Union, the theme (Schiller's 'Ode to Joy' set to the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony) is in fact the anthem for the members of the Council of Europe, currently 44 countries, many of which are outside the EU.
The European Council (not to be confused with the Council of Ministers) refers to the twice-yearly, or occasionally more frequent, summit meetings of EU heads of government (plus the directly elected presidents of France and Finland) and the president of the Commission.

 Eawp Vol. 4 No. 10: Laxe; Prado; Palmero; Dopico: Prestige Catastrophe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
The current divergence of interests among the European countries, the difficulties to implement certain rules related to the renewal of the vessels, and the own interests of both the oil industries and the maritime transport are the reasons for the present delay to harmonize these rules on a worldwide scale.
Furthermore, the institutional analysis of this problem highlights the need to have a standardised regulation of the maritime traffic of polluting goods, since there are not any mechanisms that contribute the necessary incentives so that the companies, whose accident risk is not directly related to the adopted preventions, invest in high levels of security measures.
The European Union reacted positively after the Erika accident (1999) and started to elaborate new sets of regulations to improve maritime safety, the so-called Erika I and Erika II sets of measures.

 Safe Harbor
While the United States and the European Union share the goal of enhancing privacy protection for their citizens, the United States takes a different approach to privacy from that taken by the European Union.
The European Union, however, relies on comprehensive legislation that, for example, requires creation of government data protection agencies, registration of data bases with those agencies, and in some instances prior approval before personal data processing may begin.
Where a company relies in whole or in part on self regulation in complying with the safe harbor principles, its failure to comply with such self regulation must be actionable under federal or state law prohibiting unfair and deceptive acts or it is not eligible to join the safe harbor.
