EU LEGISLATION IN PROGRESS

EU Legislation in Progress

‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings aim to provide Members of the European Parliament with systematic and automatic analysis on all substantial proposals for EU legislation at every stage of the legislative procedure. Each contains an account of the purpose, content and legal aspects of the legislation proposed, in particular analysing what the legislation would change, as well as any previous legislation and the background. An overview of stakeholders’ views is also provided, as well as the opinions of national parliaments and the two advisory committees.

We publish all our EU Legislation in Progress briefings on this blog. To facilitate browsing, we divide them according to policy area, grouped in wider clusters.
