The legislation of the European Union is very complex because the EU deals with treaties, several types of legislation like directives and regulations. Another reason for the complexity of the EU legislation is that some legislation like the directives, are directed to the EU memberstates and hence do not come into force automatically but need to be implemented by each individual memberstate into national legislation.
However, the EU is transparant and the whole process of preparation can be checked and all legislation will be published in any of the 24 official languages of the European Union.
When you need to know the latest state of the art of any issue in the European Union, we can help you tracing the relevant and actual EU legislation by searching and retrieving the documents on EU level (the directives) or national level by national legislation.
In practice, the search in the relevant databases is not easy because:
- databases are difficult to find
- one is not able to find the relevant database
- searching in databases often requires expertise
- recurring jobs can not be stored and must be entered again and again
In short, the search in the European databases will cost you a lot of time and effort and money!
Europe Consult can supply original texts of all European documents in their original language or in most other languages. You can think of (preparatory) legislative texts, green and white papers, case law, press releases and European tenders of all institutions of the European Union and so on and so forth.
