Choose the stage of process

The legislative drafting process at a ministry begins by a legislative drafting initiative such as

  • statements in the Government Programme
  • statements of Parliament,
  • citizens’ initiatives,
  • Government draft budget necessitating legislative amendments,
  • the commencement of drafting of an EU instrument requiring national implementation,
  • judgments of the European Court of Justice or interpretations of the Commission,
  • initiatives of stakeholders or authorities responsible for implementation, or
  • the ministry’s own initiative on the basis of e.g. information compiled, studies or reports, or the monitoring of implementation and impacts
