The EFTA Secretariat publishes legal notes on the EEA Agreement

Published 11-06-2019
On 11 June 2019, the EFTA Secretariat published a set of legal notes by the Secretariat on the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA).

Over the last 25 years, about 10 000 EU legal acts have been incorporated into the EEA Agreement. Some of these have had to be adapted for the purpose of the Agreement and its institutional structure. When these adaptations and adjustments are needed, experts and lawyers must come together to find solutions.

The mapping out of legal questions and the finding of solutions are topics that are not easily read up on in a text book on EEA law. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the EEA, the EFTA Secretariat has published legal notes on the two-pillar structure and on the need for adaptation texts, with the purpose of sharing this knowledge more widely, so that it can more easily be consulted by colleagues in public administration or EU institutions, EEA law practitioners and academia.
