Chapter Summary

Multilevel regulation involves the interaction between different normative levels, mostly between the international and national level. However, for the European Commision/ European Union (EC/EU) Member States, the Community legal order comes in as an additional level that complicates the multilevel regulation paradigm. The question of which position and legal effect World Trade Organisation (WTO) law and WTO dispute settlement reports have within the Community legal order has arisen ever since the saga of the banana dispute between the EC, several Latin-American countries and the US began. Determining the position of a norm within the multilevel regulation paradigm can assist in making the right choice about which and how the norm should be implemented at the domestic level. In short, the hierarchy of norms is an inherent part of multilevel regulation.

Keywords:European Commision (EC); multilevel regulation; World Trade Organisation (WTO) law
