This Order puts in place the arrangements necessary in the State to give full effect to Council Regulation (EC) no. 343/2003. That Council Regulation sets out the rules and procedures for determining which member state of the European Union is responsible for dealing with an asylum application made in one of them. The Council Regulation also applies to Iceland and Norway, but does not apply to Denmark. Arrangements in this regard with Denmark continue to be governed by the Dublin Convention, to which effect is given in the State by the Dublin Convention (Implementation) Order 2000 (S.I. No. 343 of 2000).
