European Union Law is the notion of a common set of rules that is applicable to the entire Union as a whole. In order to conduct business in the EU, it is crucial for businesses to comply in accordance with the appropriate regulatory framework, in all operational aspects. Thus, the EU enables a level playing field for the market, by legislating and enforcing the regulatory framework throughout the EU.
The regulatory framework of the EU comprises two main sets of rules- Regulations, that form the highest form of harmonization of laws, and Directives, that form the lowest form of harmonization of laws.
Once the relevant regulatory framework is established, the issue of compliance becomes of relevance, as it is the modus opernadi of adapting and executing the applicable regulatory framework.
