European Case Law

General Court (Second Chamber), 24 May 2016, in case T‑126/15 (El Corte Inglés, SA, v EUIPO Grup Supeco Maxor, SL)

Regulation (EC) No 2868/95— Rule 15(2)(f)

The wording used in one language version of a provision of EU law cannot serve as the sole basis for the interpretation of that provision, or be made to override the other language versions in that regard. Such an approach would be incompatible with the requirement that EU law be applied uniformly. Where there is a divergence between the various language versions, the provision in question must thus be interpreted by reference to the general scheme and the purpose of the rules of which it forms part.
