Thus, the 14 Member States already Contracting Parties themselves, now apply all [these] regulations by virtue of the EC's accession."... By the EC accession, Ireland has not become a Contracting Party. Only the EC has become a Contracting Party. Ireland being a Member State of this Contracting Party applies the [...] regulations [adhered to by the EC] by virtue of the EC's accession.It will be recalled that, as at 29 July 1999, States Members of the EC are: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.4Contracting State having proposed the Regulation and date of entry into force of the Regulation for that State in accordance with article 1 (3).5See note 2 under “Germany” in the “Historical Information” section in the front matter of this volume.6Date of entry into force of Regulation No. 80 as indicated by the contracting State in its notification of application: 2Participant:Date entry into force: Netherlands23 Feb 1989
