3. The drafting of acts shall take account of the persons to whom they are intended to apply, with a view to enabling them to identify their rights and obligations unambiguously, and of the persons responsible for putting the acts into effect.
There are different categories of addressees of legislative acts, ranging from the population at large to specialists in specific fields. Each category is entitled to expect that legislation will use language that they can understand.
The fact that account is taken of the different categories of person to whom the acts are addressed results in differences in both the statement of reasons and the enacting terms of those acts.
Ease of transposition also depends on it.
In addition to the addressees, acts entail intervention by the national authority at different levels, for example, civil servants, scientists and judges. The language of the act should take account of that; texts may include technical requirements whose implementation falls to specialised officials in that field.
