(p.98) (p.99) 4 Comitology
EU Administrative Law

Paul Craig

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on comitology and the making of secondary norms, which are commonly rules cast in the form of regulations. It begins with an analysis of the nature of the problem presented by rule-making, and the necessity for any polity, including the European Union (EU), to administer an area through secondary norms of a legislative nature. It then provides a historical overview of rule-making in the EU and the role of comitology therein. The focus shifts to detailed evaluation of three approaches to rule-making and comitology. The chapter concludes by considering the optimal way of dealing with rule-making from the perspective of principle and practicality, taking full account of the way in which the EU operates.

Keywords:   comitology, secondary norms, rule-making, European Union
