  European Union directive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A directive is a collective legislative act of the European Union which requires member states to achieve a particular result without dictating the means of achieving that result.
Directives normally leave member states with a certain amount of leeway as to the exact rules to be adopted.
In practice, with the exception of directives related to the common agricultural policy, directives are addressed to all member states, and specifies a date by which the states must have put the directive into effect.
