Understanding the basics of EU secondary legislation
Delegated and implementing acts in 2018

Register for our open-enrolment workshops!

From endocrine disruptors to roaming, CAP greening to financial services, secondary legislation continues to impact directly on companies, NGOs and citizens across Europe.

Following the publication of their new updated Handbook on EU Secondary Legislation, PACT European Affairs is organising open-enrolment workshops in Brussels, delivered by Daniel Guéguen, Vicky Marissen and the PACT team.

Recognised as THE experts in the field, PACT’s operational workshops will explain the ins and outs of delegated acts, implementing acts and the Regulatory Procedure with Scrutiny, giving you a clear understanding of these vital decision-making processes.
