The chapter investigates the establishment of the European Public Prosecutor 's Office (EPPO) from the perspective of better regulation and subsidiarity. The chapter addresses the question as to what extent the idea for the creation of an EPPO represents ’Better Regulation’ as well as to what extent the subsidiarity concerns expressed by the Member States are well founded when considering the EU financial crimes area as a whole. The chapter concludes by discussing the ’Better Regulation’ criteria specifically with regard to subsidiarity concerns in EU criminal law.
