Delegated acts

The law-makers can give the EU Commission the option to supplement or amend (which means decide) certain non-essential elements of the EU law or framework law by delegating authority. The Convention on the Future of Europe proposed introducing delegated acts as a special category of law in addition to EU law and EU framework law.

Delegated acts have supremacy over national laws and national constitutions although they are to be approved in an organ where all member states are not represented.

For delegated acts, see Art. I-35 in the EU Constution which is likely to be the rule most often used if the constitution is accepted and ratified.
