Hierarchy of Acts in Europe

Description of Hierarchy of acts

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes hierarchy of acts in the following terms: [1] The classification of EC legal acts according to their importance, with the object of establishing which law-making body should deal with which category of legislation. This orderly French procedure was proposed in a Declarationannexed to the Treaty of Maastricht, but the idea was not pursued in the Treaty of Amsterdam.
