National Parliaments have 8 weeks to check Commission proposals for compliance with the subsidiarity principle. The Council and European Parliament have up to three readings, with a possibility to conclude at each stage, to agree on a Commission proposal.

Implementing Acts are used for routine implementation of framework legislation and cover issues of general OR individual scope.
