Abstract

The nature and evolution of the exercise of regulatory powers in the EU is explicable only in the context of the increasing diversification of forms of act and of actors – both within the EU’s executive branch of powers through ‘agencification’ as well as with regard to co-opted private and semi-private standard setting bodies external to the EU. But whilst standardisation fulfils important functions in the regulation of the internal market, questions of legitimacy and participation of such activity need to be closely monitored. Procedural rules for all forms of rule-making in the Union as well as to judge whether standards can be incorporated into EU law appear to be a growing necessity.
