In Community law, a decision is a legislative instrument that is binding in its entirety on all those to whom it is addressed. A decision may be adopted under the EC Treaty either by the European Parliament and the Council or by the Council or by the Commission. Decisions are rarely used in the field of judicial cooperation in civil matters. The European Judicial Network in Civil Matters was established by a Council Decision.
