Yes, that's right, Karen. If we take vacuum cleaners as a example, the EU rules say they will only accept certain standards. If we wanted to sell to them, we have to meet those standards. But that is a decision of the individual business: make an EU-compatible version, an EU incompatible version, or both. As an EU member, it is possible the rules restricted what we could manufacture - I really don't know. Outside the EU, we could certainly manufacture both if we wished.
