The European Union is an autonomous entity, provided with an legal system independent from the ones of the member States. According to the limits of the Union's competences, both the member States and their citizens are subject to that system. The European integration's process involves the progressive enlargement of the Union's competences. Its legal corpus represents its strength and differentiates it from any other collective governance model in the world.
By now, almost all normative sectors are conditioned by the European Union law. One of its long-term objectives is to better legislate in order to reach its ambitious political objectives. According to that, the Union aims to organize its politics and instruments in an inclusive and fully transparent way, in a dialogic logic and considering the stakeholders' opinions, in order to implement easily applicable laws. The Union recognizes the role of those to whom the legislation is addressed, in particular at local, regional, national and EU levels, as they are the ones who better know the regulation's impact and can therefore give the necessary inputs to improve it.
Besides having a cognitive purpose, the information about the legislative monitoring aims to establish a tool to better manage and coordinate the activities of the European Region of Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino related to the decisions about the implementation of the EU acts, following also the realization in their respective systems.
