EU framework law

The Convention proposes that this be the new name for directives. Directives are general injunctions, which it is left to the national Member States to implement in detail. Directives/framework laws can have direct effect (i.e. apply at the national level irrespective of being integrated into national law) if if they are precise enough.

Countries can be fined for not implementing framework law into national law within the set deadline.
