FRANCE: EU refers France to Court of Justice for refusal to import British beef
The Commission of the European Union has today [Wednesday] referred France to the European Court of Justice for a second time for its refusal to comply with its judgement on British beef. Under the EU-Treaty, a Member State is obliged to implement a judgment of the European Court of Justice (ECJ). On 13 December 2001, the ECJ declared France's refusal to lift its ban on British beef and bovine products complying with the DBES as unlawful. Thus, France was obliged to implement the relevant EU rules and to allow the resumption of imports of correctly marked or labelled British DBES beef and products to France.
