recommendation
a form of Act of the European Union that has no binding force. It has been held that recommendations should still be taken into account by the national courts, especially if the recommendation assists with interpretation of some European law: Grimal-di v. Fonds de maladies professionnelles (1989) 322/88. Nonetheless, it is not possible to have them reviewed nor to seek a preliminary ruling upon them. A recommendation in the ECSC is more like an EEC Directive.

recommendation
Instrument of indirect action of the European Community that allows the institutions to make their views known and to suggest a line of action without imposing any legal obligation on those to whom it is addressed (which can be member states, other institutions or citizens). They are not legally binding and do not form part of the formal legislative procedure, but they do have some political weight.
