In transposing Directive 2001/86/EC, EU member states were granted quite a number of choices. This section looks at the ways in which the SE Directive has been transposed in the different EEA member states and provide information on key aspects, such as the selection of the national representatives on the special negotiating body and the standard rules. The Comparison Tool enables you to make individualised comparisons between countries and criteria.

The full text of the transposition laws and (for most countries) unofficial translations into English can be downloaded from the EU Commission website.
