VIENNA (Reuters) - The European Commission is taking Austria to the Court of Justice of the European Union for discriminating against foreign ski instructors.

In the southern province of Tyrol, for example, foreign instructors were not allowed to accept clients who were already in Austria. The Commission also criticized the Styria region for not accepting some foreign ski instructor qualifications.

"Such requirements are contrary to EU law," the Commission said in a statement.
