|1. The competent authority of a Contracting State may request the Court of Justice to
give a ruling on a question of interpretation of the Convention or of one of the other
instruments referred to in Article 1 if judgments given by courts of that State conflict with
the interpretation given either by the Court of Justice or in a judgment of one of the courts
of another Contracting State referred to in point 1 or 2 of Article 2. The provisions of this

not affect the judgments which gave rise to the request for interpretation.

other authority designated by a Contracting State, shall be entitled to request the Court of
Justice for a ruling on interpretation in accordance with paragraph 1.

Contracting States, to the Commission and to the Council of the European Communities;
they shall then be entitled within two months of the notification to submit statements of

|2. Pursuant to Article 172 of the Treaty*, the Court of Justice shall have unlimited jurisdiction in regard to any penalty imposed under Articles 17 and 182. The Commission may not proceed with the enforcement of a penalty until the period allowed for appeal has expired.|
|The International Court of Justice has jurisdiction in two types of cases: contentious issues between states in which the court produces binding rulings between states that agree, or have previously agreed, to submit to the ruling of the court; and advisory opinions, which provide reasoned, but non-binding, rulings on properly submitted questions of international law, usually at the request of the United Nations General Assembly. Advisory opinions do not have to concern particular controversies between states, though they often do.|
