(TRANSLATION) THE FACTS The applicants, the Federation of French Medical Trade Unions and the National Federation of Nurses, are two associations covered by French law, wit htheirheadoficesinParis . They are represented before the Commission by Mr . Charles de Chaisemarti noftheParisBar . Both are registered administrative associations of the type provided for in Article 64, l.n. 76-1232 (subsequently Article 1649 quater F) of the General Taxation Code and their chief purpose is to provide their members with certain tax accountancy services . Members of the liberal professions who join registered administrative associations must undertake to respect certainmaccountancy obligations . In return, they enjoy two tax concessions : they may apply a reduction to' taxable profits under Article 158-4 of the General Taxation Code, and the period during which the tax authorities may require rectification of errors made by the registered associations is reduced from four to two years under Articles 1966 A and 1968 A of the same Code . Under provisions introduced by Article 73 of Act No . 82-1126 of 29 December 1982, the accounts of members must indicate inter alia the client's identity,, regardless of his profession (cf . the new Article 1649 quater G of the General Taxation Code) . This formality also applies to members belonging to categories bound by professional secrecy, including doctors and nurses, Act No . 82-1126 having derogated from the provisions of Article 378 of the French Criminal Code .Adirectiveof16March1983statedthatthescheduleofmemberssubjectt o professional secrecy in the conditions specified in Section 378 of the Criminal Code might simply refer to an appended document which could be used to trace the client' sidentity,providedthatheauthoritieshadacestothatdocument . COMPLAINTS Before the Commission, the applicant associations complain that this account-, ing formality constitutes unjustified interference with the right of members and, patients to respect for their private lives . They allege a violation of Article 8 of the Convention . 228 They furthei- complain that Act No . 82-1126 ne.essarily means that the proi[ection provided for the private lives of patients and the naedical staff treatiug them varies with the tax status of such staff, since membership oï an administrartive association is not compulsory . They allege that this constitutes a violation of Article 14 of the Convention . I THE LAW 11 . The two applicant associations complain of unjustified and discriminatory interfei-ence with the right of patients to respect for their private lives . Irr doing so, they are asking the Commission to make an examination. in a6stracto of the effects on unspecified tltird parties of the legislation wh~ch they criticise, in reaGty intending to bring an "actio popu[aris", an institution for which no provision is made in the Convention (cf. Application No . 9297J81, Dec. 1 .3.82, D.R. 28 pp . 204, 209). It folilows that this part of the application is incompatible rakone personae with the provisions of the Convention, and must be rejected in accordance with Article 27 para . 2 of the Convention . 2 . The two applicant associations also complain ol' unjustified and discriniinatory interference with the right of their member doctors and nurses to respect 1`or ttteir private lives . In this respect theCornmission notes that they do not clabn to be, themselves the victims of aviolation of the Convemion, and state that they are representing medical staff allegedly the victims of a violation occasioned by Act No . 82-112(i of 129 December 1982 . Once they had stated that they were representing various individuals, who had thus become the applicants, ït became essential for the associations to identify these individuals (Rule 37 of the C'ommission's Rules of Procec7ure) and to show that they had received specific instructions from eaclh of them . Si.nce this has not beeu done, the rest of the application must be rejected as anonymous, with:n the meaning of Article 27 para . 1(a) of the Convention . For these reasons, the Cormnissio n DECLARES THE APPLICATION INADMISSIBL .E. 229
