The member states of the European Union comprise just as many different legal orders. To an increasing extent, these national rules are based on European directives and need to be interpreted in the market oriented spirit of the underlying European rules. Other European rules in European regulations or the Treaty of the European Union take priority over the national law of the members states of the European Union. The interpretation of all European acts is under the ultimate control of the European Court of Justice.
