Matters for which the Union is conferred exclusive competence are matters for which, in principle, the MS have decided to permanently cede powers to the Union. Article 2(1) TFEU defines exclusive Union competence as an area where ‘only the Union may legislate and adopt legally binding acts, the MS being able to do so themselves only if so empowered by the Union or for the implementation of Union acts’. In some of these areas, the ToL has brought about significant clarifications and extensions, in particular concerning the scope of the common commercial policy (see paras [13–15]).
