Regulations 1989 and for, certain electrical toys, compliance with the Low Voltage Electrical Equipment Regulations 1989 is also necessary. The Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive may also be appropriate. If your product is designed, or clearly intended, for use in play by children less than fourteen years, it comes under the jurisdiction of the Toys Safety Directive.

What does Dr. Symeonides mean when he characterises Rome II as a missed opportunity? Would it be fairer to see the Regulation as an essential step forward in the process of European harmonisation of conflict rules? Support your answer with practical examples.
The EU Parliament also wished to introduce some changes to the draft version that would make document more flexible, however most of these were rejected during the three Parliamentary readings. The final text of the Rome I, according to Symeonides, has adopted very strict rules with relatively few exemption clauses and left a little room for flexibility and judicial discretion. The Rome II covers non-commercial matters in cases of conflict of laws and applies within and outside of the EU.

How did the provisions of Part II of the Merchant Shipping Act 1988 and Part VII of the Merchant Shipping (Registration of Shipping Vessels) Regulations 1988 threaten the livelihoods of Factortame? On what grounds did they claim the provisions were contrary to European Economic Community law? Why was the prohibition they were seeking so urgent?
This act and its regulations were introduced due to Spain?s fishing vessels attempting to obtain a part of Britain?s fishing quota allocation. The act demanded that the vessel could only be eligible for registration if the vessel is British owned, controlled from within the UK, and that the vessel?s management is a UK person or company. None of the applicant companies complied with the conditions, as they were mostly citizens of Spain. The consequences that the applicants could potentially incur would be the inability to fish in UK waters, which could result in agricultural difficulties and food shortages for areas dependant on fisheries.

Why was Article 13 of the Convention left out of the Human Rights Act 1998 and with what results? How could the relationship between the Human Rights Act 1998 and the European Convention on Human Rights change after the entry into force of Article 6 (2 and 3) of the Lisbon Treaty?
For the years between 1951 and 1998, English courts were influenced by the European Convention of Human Rights 1950 yet it was not enforced. ?The House of Lords stated that they would presume that Parliament did not intent to legislate contrary to the ECHR.? This leads us to assume that decisions taken by the House of Lords would most closely correspond with the rules set out in the ECHR, but that this compliance is not legally binding. Since the European Court of Human Rights can only be called upon after all domestic remedies have been exhausted, Parliament plays a large role in deciding if primary and secondary legislations were incompatible with the ECHR.
