Decisions

 

Texts that have mostly been adopted by the Commission who then has to follow the consultation procedure of the regulatory committees (comitology rules). The Commission can act upon Decision by virtue of the Treaty (for instance regarding competition) or by virtue of regulations or directives bestowing on her such a power. As are Regulations, all parts of Decisions are binding but only to the subjects whom they are aimed at. Decisions therefore do not require a national legislation to be implemented. A Decision can be aimed at one, several, or all Member States, to companies or private persons
