Didn't notice any difference and I have not heard nobody complying. Estonia is not china, it is a Baltic country closed connected in tradition, history and even genetically with the other Scandinavian countries. They were occupied by the Russians and are recovering economically from that.

Lots of Nordic boats being built there to take advantage of the cheaper labor and skilled workmanship.
