Swimming in ECJ case law: The rocky journey to EU law applicability in the continental shelf and exclusive economic zone

26.10.2020 EU law

Regarding activities taking place at sea, the applicability of EU law depends on the nature and geographic location of the activity as well as on the formulation of the geographical scope of the legal instrument.

With Member States’ ever increasing activity at sea, the ECJ is confronted with various questions on the application of EU law at sea; its case law is analysed in this article by Jaap Waverijn and Ceciel Nieuwenhout published in the leading EU law journal Common Market Law Review.

Firstly, the foundation of EU competence at sea in public international law and EU law is explored. Secondly, the line of ECJ case law is analysed. Thirdly, the interplay between the legislature’s formulations and the Court’s reasoning is addressed, as well as the validity of the latter in light of public international law. The article concludes by reflecting on the consequences of the Court’s reasoning, with recommendations regarding alternatives.

ECJ clarifies limits of antitrust limitation periods

Short Reads - Companies confronted with antitrust investigations and fines may find safeguard behind the rules governing limitation periods (often termed ‘statutes of limitation’). However, two preliminary rulings by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) show that those rules are not necessarily set in stone. According to the ECJ, national time limits relating to the imposition of antitrust fines may require deactivation if these limits result in a ‘systemic risk’ that antitrust infringements may go unpunished.
