Regulations


Texts of the Parliament and the Council (there are also Regulations of the Council alone), at the proposal of the Commission. They are directly applicable and binding in all EU member states without any implementing measures having to be adopted in national law. They therefore create law in the entire European Union, regardless of borders and they apply uniformly and in their entirety in all member states.
