German term or phrase: einschlägig geltender
What does einschlägig geltender mean here? As far as I know one is relevant and one is valid, but when one modifies the other???

Explanation:
"einschlägig gelten" is doppelt-gemoppelt, as a law, regulation and the like can only be applicable (=einschlägig) if it is also valid (i.e. if it is in currently in force).

Applicable would be a better choice than relevant, as this is what \"einschlägig\" in fact means: the laws, regulations, provisions, rules, etc that apply to a person, situation, case, etc.

\"Relevant\" only means that these laws, etc have some bearing on a situation; etc, they are not necessarily the ones that must be applied.
