The below information is about domestic and community infringements under Part 8 of the Enterprise Act 2002.
As Part 8 replaced the Stop Now Orders (EC Directive) Regulations 2001, it contains all the necessary provisions to ensure the full implementation of the Injunctions Directive, including the facilitation of cross border enforcement. It is for this reason that the Act distinguishes between domestic infringements (which are concerned with ensuring a sufficient level of enforcement by UK based enforcers) and Community infringements (for which cross-border enforcement is created). The latter also covers domestic action by UK enforcers in respect of breaches of the UK legislation implementing the Directives covered by the Injunctions Directive.
In addition, the links on the right hand side will take you to further information about specific legislative areas.
