What are EU decisions?

Decisions are EU laws relating to specific cases. They can come from the EU Council (sometimes jointly with the European Parliament) or the Commission.

They can require authorities and individuals in Member States either do something or stop doing something, and can also confer rights on them.

EU decisions are:
• addressed to specific parties (unlike regulations),
• fully binding.
