We consider open dynamical systems, subject to external interventions by agents that are not completely described by the theory (classical or quantal). These interventions are localized in regions that are relatively space-like. Under these circumstances, no relativistic transformation law exists which relates the descriptions of the physical system by observers in relative motion. Still, physical laws are the same in all Lorentz frames.
