This chapter examines the making and applying of EU legislation. Regarding the making of legislation, attention is focused on legislation that is subject to a full legislative procedure, which means legislation that generally is thought to be especially significant and/or is concerned with establishing principles. The reason for this focus is that legislation that does not require a full legislative procedure – which means legislation that is usually narrow in focus and of an administrative and/or implementing character – was examined in Chapter 9. By way of introducing ‘the overall shape’ of EU legislative and application procedures, Figure 19.1 shows their key organisational features and the positions of the main EU institutions within them. As can be seen, the ‘route’ taken by proposed administrative legislation is to the right of the figure and that taken by proposals involving a full legislative process is to the left.
