Over the years, a number of EU Committees have been set up to provide the EU institutions with advice on technical matters – composed of member state government representatives and chaired by a Commission representative.
The following is a description of the process through which a CAP-related legislative act is typically enacted, through the EU’s ordinary legislative procedure (Article 294 of the Treaty of Rome):
There are three types of instrument by which the EU is governed and managed: Regulation, Directive, and Decision.
EU policy proposals formally originate in the European Commission. The original inspiration may, however, come from a number of different sources: the Council of Ministers, a Management Committee, an Advisory Committee, the European Parliament, EU trade and professional associations, or from organisations in the member states.
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is involved in the legislative process in an advisory capacity. The 344 members represent three broad groups: employers, trade unions and independents. The EESC is required to give an opinion on most measures proposed by the Commission and may draw up reports on its own initiative.
