Lawmaking procedures

Follow the life cycle of a legislative proposal from the moment it is launched until the final law is adopted.

A timeline gives a visual representation of the procedure. All interventions by the institutions and bodies involved in the decision‑making process are represented.

From the timeline, you can access detailed information about each institution's decisions and how they were taken; the services and departments involved; the legal basis of the act, etc.
