    I'm having difficulty with the difference between indistinctly and distinctly applicable measures and was wondering if anyone could put it in a way which would help me understand it better (I seem to get it but then get confused in its application).

    Distincly is easy to spot. they are direct measures against imports, which make them cost more relative to domestic products. So safety checks on goods from another EU country.

    Indistinct is harder to spot. Its where they require the imported goods to meet the same rules as domestic products, which puts the importer at a disadvantage o.e an extyra expense because the importer has to cchange packaging to match that of the home country.

    The whole area is dicussed very well inthese flash cards which illustrates with cases as well.

    Nvm. You have to give people a bit of time if you want legal questions answered.
