just like international law in general — has direct effect in the Principality of Liechtenstein. i.e. 
it is effective as international law on a national level from the time of taking effect without 
any special national act of transformation." 3 
Apart from this obligation directly resulting from international law, Art. 3 EEAA states that 
the Contracting Parties shall take all appropriate measures, whether general or particular, to 
ensure fulfilment of the obligations arising out of the Agreement. 
One must also mention Protocol 35 on the implementation of EEA rules, according to which 
the EFTA countries are obliged to introduce, if necessary, a legal provision stating that EEA 
law prevails in cases where there is a conflict between implemented EEA rules and other legal 
rules. However, there was no need to introduce such an explicit legal rule in Liechtenstein, 
since it is the practice of the State Court that EEA law prevails over any Liechtenstein law 
contradicting it^, unless "fundamental principles and core elements of the fundamental rights 
laid down in the Liechtenstein Constitution" are violated.” However, it is the opinion of the 
State Court that such a constellation is conceivable only in stark exceptional cases, so that the 
constitutionality of a decision of the EFTA Court or of an EEA rule need not be examined in 
In addition, the obligation to apply EEA law is not limited to the EEAA itself but in particular 
also extends to its Annexes, which are adapted to the development of the European Union's 
body of law by resolutions of the EEA Joint Committee as far as is relevant for the EEA.’
