9.7.1984: Proceedings against the Purity Law
The EU Commission instigated proceedings against Germany at the European Court of Justice. It took legal action because the sale of foreign beer that is not brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law is prohibited in Germany. In 1982, the EU Commission outlawed "restrictions on free trade" within the European Union, which enabled it to instigate the proceedings of the Purity Law.
