Page: 280 Chart Number: 11/2 Chart Title: The Cassis de Dijon principle and the need for harmonisation

A codified version of the audiovisual media services was adopted on 10 March 2010. Accordingly the notes box at the bottom should read:


• After Cassis de Dijon (1979) and through the development of the definition of restrictions as a legal concept by the ECJ, the Cassis de Dijon principle also applies in other fields of EU Treaty law; see Chart 8/35, Chart 8/63.

• The Cassis de Dijon principle also applies in the framework of certain secondary legislation; e.g. Art. 3 of Directive 2000/31/EC (e-commerce Directive); Arts. 2 and 3 of Directive 2010/13/EU (Audiovisual Media Services Directive).
