How decisions are made

EU policies and laws are carefully designed to bring benefits to citizens, businesses and other stakeholders in the EU. Depending on its level of political importance, an initiative is either decided on by the Commission during the Commissioners' weekly meetings, using the oral procedure, or by written procedure.
