Delegated acts

Delegated acts

The lawmakers can give the EU Commission the option to supplement or amend certain non-essential elements of the EU law or framework law by delegating authority.

The Lisbon Treaty introduced delegated acts as a special category of law in addition to EU directives and regulations.

Delegated acts have also supremacy over national laws and national constitutions. For delegated acts, see Article 290 TFEU in the Lisbon Treaty.
