(Vorläufiges) Ende der 75-ECU-Grenze für den Reisefreibetrag?

When Austria joined the European Union, it was granted a special regulation for travel under customs law. This regulation, however, had a time limit and has now expired. Austria has tried to have the measure extended, but has not been successful. Thus starting with Jan. 1, 1998, a number of problems in the interpretation of this regulation have arisen and they are leading to uncertainties in the field of law. Andreas Janko presents a thorough description of the legal situation.
