Procureur de la Republique de Besancon v Les Sieurs Bouhelier and others: ECJ 3 Feb 1977

The expression ‘quantitative restrictions on exports and any measures having equivalent effect’ contained in article 34 of the EEC Treaty must be understood as applying to rules adopted by a member state which require in respect only of the export of certain goods either a licence or a standards certificate which is issued in place of such licence and may be refused if the quality does not conform to certain standards laid down by the body issuing the said certificate, even if such certificate does not give rise to the imposition of a charge.
