Community legal instruments

Community Legal Instruments

  • A Regulation

is directly applicable in all the Member States after publication in the Official Journal. Transposition into national law is automatic. The Regulation is effective simultaneously and in a uniform manner in each Member State.

  • A Directive

gives the Member States a performance obligation, allowing national authorities the choice of form and methods to attain it.

  • Recommendations and Opinions

are not binding or obligatory and simply

express an opinion (the political desiderata of the EU)

  • A Decision

has a specific aim. As opposed to a regulation, it is addressed to an individual, to a business or to an individual State.

  • Other Commission papers

include internal working papers, thematic strategies, Green and White papers
