Commission, Case T-3/09 In 2002, the Council adopted Regulation No 1177/2002, which creates a temporary defensive mechanism for shipbuilding in view of the serious injury suffered by Community shipyards as a result of unfair Korean competition. This was an exceptional and temporary measure (albeit part of a long series of similar measures to protect EU shipyards) adopted on the basis of Article 87(3)(e) EC, which allows the Council to determine categories of aid that can be considered compatible with the internal market. The expiry date of this Regulation (as amended by Council Regulation No 502/2004) was 31 March 2005.
