This chapter addresses agenda setting and preparatory measures of specific acts as well as planning procedures. This subject matter covers an area of EU law which, in the light of the distribution of powers between the institutions, can be a prelude to both administrative measures of various kinds and legislative rule-making. In setting agenda and taking preparatory steps for other measures, whether its own or those of the legislative organs, the European Commission acts in its capacity as a political administration — indeed European executive — par excellence. The Commission's activity in this capacity is made very clear. The consideration given to the administrative determination of the course of future action and the agenda setting and the readying of future measures also raises important and interesting questions with regard to the distinction between binding and non-binding acts.
