Where legislation is specified as enforceable as a Community infringement, it is not usually also specified for the purposes of a domestic infringement. However, there are some cases where legislation is specified twice to ensure that legislation can be effectively or coherently enforced. For example, it is not possible to draw a clear distinction between some of the provisions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 that implement the Consumer Credit Directive or which provide additional permitted protections and others t hat are outside the scope of the Directive.
The Secretary of State has the power to remove or add European Directives to the Enterprise Act to reflect future changes to the Directives covered by the Injunctions Directive.
