The issue discussed has to do with comitology, in the level of committees’ assistance to the Commission in carrying out decisions of the European organs, with either regulatory or individual actions. Comitology refers to a decision-making procedure in which committees support and advise the Commission in the implementation of tasks conferred on it by the Community legislature. At the same time, the Member States maintain a degree of control over the way in which the Commission implements its tasks and, in certain circumstances, the Council can also be involved in the implementing measures. The committees are autonomous European bodies of a public nature, not directly established by the Treaties, but created as a result of acts of secondary legislation adopted by the Council. They consist of representatives of the Member States, under the chairmanship of a representative of the Commission, have their own legal personality and have been established with a view to fulfilling technical or scientific tasks. The committees constitute institutional counterweight to the executive power of the Commission and barrier to involvement of the European Parliament in the implementation of European legislation. The Council promulgated three comitology decisions (87/373/EEC, 1999/468/EC, 2006/512/EC – also the ongoing 2010/0051(COD)procedure) which aimed to improve the efficiency of the Community’s decision-making process, to achieve greater consistency and predictability in the choice of type of committee with non-binding criteria, to simplify the requirements for the exercise of implementing powers and to improve the involvement of and information to the European Parliament, as well as to improve information to the public. Approaching case law and legislation, we do search out the legal substance of comitology and its position in the European edifice, under the light of improvement of the116European institutions, for the interests of European citizens and the values of European civilization.
